It occurs to me that our child sponsor page on our website is way out of date. I shall get onto that update soon. In the meantime here is an update on the seven sponsor children Ssubi supports and also on some sponsor children from the past that have moved on.
Unfortunately not all in things in life work out; we are not longer supporting the two Irene’s, after completing primary 7, one of the Irene’s got married and now has a child. The other Irene dropped out of Secondary 1 due to a pregnancy and she also now has a child. When we last saw Bukenya he was doing well in school and looking good, no sign of the skin disease. Unfortunately Ssubi stopped supporting Bukenya in late 2008 due to issues we were having with his mother. We have learned a lot this past four years especially to appreciate the role Dusman plays in guiding and mentoring the children. And in assessing each child to ensure sponsorship is needed and supported by the child’s caregiver or guardian. Money is only part of the of the solution, kind of like many things in life.
