Personal and Family Information
Lee Ben, the child of South Sudanese refugees, lives in Uganda with his grandmother. When his father disappeared in 2008, his mother began working three jobs to support her two children—as a night watchman at an industrial area, boda-boda (bicycle taxi driver), and gardener. She is currently attending a training program away from home to become a tailor. When she is done, she plans to open a tailor shop, so she can better support her children.
Lee Ben is a good student who loves studying English. He is currently in P.1 (first-year primary school). He needs your assistance, so he can stay in school and escape a lifetime cycle of poverty. Your monthly support will pay his school fees; provide him with food, clothes, and medical care; and ensure he does not have to drop out of school to work petty jobs to help support his family.
