Obwaagazi Family Sponsorship Program
Mpala lives with his mom, aunt, and 6 siblings in Masese, Uganda. They own a temporary house with a cement floor. The house has electricity and a latrine, but no running water. They have access to safe drinking water through boiling.
The main source of income for Mpala’s family comes from farming. The farming doesn’t provide enough money to feed the family daily meals, or to cover medical needs. The family are also trying to run a small shop from their home.
Mpala's mother has noticed a huge difference in the attitude of the community around them since Mpala started school. He now has many friends and is well-respected by their neighbours.
