Ben Kyeswa, 12 years

Ben Kyeswa, 12 years

Ben comes from a village called Bubwa in Eastern Uganda. He stays with his Grandma because his parents aren't together anymore. Bubwa village is by Lake Victoria, but it's sad because Ben can't go to school since his Grandma can't afford it.

Even though he's only 12, Ben enjoys fishing because he lives near the lake. But it's dangerous because many young fishermen fall into the water and drown.

Ben likes helping his Grandma with chores like digging, which is how she earns money to take care of him.

Our team found Ben, just like many others in similar situations. Hopefully, with the help of our partners and sponsors, we can get him back to school.
