Home information: Dinah is growing up in the village of Bugoi in rural northeastern Uganda. Her family resides in Akwei, a small community within Bugoi. Dinah lives with her mother and father and has three sisters and one brother. Her family supports themselves by “digging”—they grow beans, millet, and cassava to eat and to sell at market when they can. Dinah helps at home by carrying the baby, sweeping, and washing dishes.
School information: Dinah is in P2 (primary grade 2) at the Bugoi Haven of Hope Nursery and Primary School, where she has been a student since 2018. Her teachers report that she is good girl and loves school a lot. Sponsorship will fund her continued education and care. Dinah’s younger sister, Hildah, also attends the Haven of Hope school.
Village information: In Bugoi, most people live in small groupings of mud huts with thatched roofs and depend on small-scale farming or gardening to feed themselves. This is often made difficult by drought, which can lead to poor harvests and famine. Families tend to be large, and many adults care for orphans in addition to their biological children. Disease, including HIV and AIDS, is common and has left many children without one or both of their parents. Poverty also keeps many children from attending school, as families struggle to meet their basic needs and afford school fees.
Prayer requests: Dinah asks for prayer to get a sponsor and become a teacher one day.
