Supporters may recall Ivan, one of Amasiko’s first street children, who had to undergo surgery on his foot several months back. He is now sponsored and settled at Amazing Love School.
Ivan passed by the AAU office at the end of term yesterday. Our Director Wilberforce writes: “You should’ve been around to see how his pals (former street children) welcomed him – with open admiration and, perhaps, envy! In the first place, the fact that Ivan opted to go home rather than spend his time at school or loitering on the streets of Kabale speaks volumes. Furthermore, this time, rather than offering him the ‘traditional’ gum (glue) to sniff, the street children offered him a mug of hot porridge, which he enjoyed.”
What wonderful work from the teams at Alongside Africa Uganda and Amazing Love School.
Ivan is pictured here when he was still a street child and now proudly wearing his school uniform, along with two female children at Amasiko who are getting support from the programme but who need sponsors.
