Personal Information

Hamoyo Ajok became a refugee at 8 years old after her father disappeared in a rebel attack in South Sudan. Her mother endured, and still, struggling to maintain Hamoyo and her siblings. Today, she lives in extreme poverty with her family in Bulonde slum, in an outskirt of Kampala, Uganda. She is a good student, loves to study English, and has so much potential. Please sponsor Hamoyo, so she can go to boarding school and escape a lifetime cycle of poverty.

After Hamoyo father disappeared at the start of South Sudan war, she, her mother and nine siblings moved to Kampala, Uganda, to live as refugees. When her mother cannot longer provide for her family’s basic necessities, she moved in with a Sudanese family headed by a single mother, Mama Safari. Mama Safari is barely able to support Hamoyo, and her own three children selling local breweries and doing other odd jobs.

Her hand-to-mouth enterprise doesn’t cover her household’s basic needs, and her own three children do not go to school due to lack of money. In Uganda, parents or guardians must pay school fees to fund school buildings, books, writing materials, school meals, and uniforms.

Hamoyo helps in the home by cleaning the house and cooking for her host family. Sometimes she works as a house-girl to buy herself clothes. She dreams of becoming a teacher and moves away to a better life. Your monthly support will pay her school fees; provide her with food, clothes, and medical care; and give her a ticket out of poverty.

By sponsoring a refugee child, you will join more than 3000 donors who believe children should be released from poverty in Education. Start your sponsorship story today by sending this child to school now!
