Cyrus is a 16 year old boy in P.7 who has 4 siblings (2 girls and 2 boys) staying with a single parent (mother) and Grandmother.
He wants to thank his sponsor for choosing him out of all the children at Kainagoga village.
Cyrus says that it feels good to be sponsored because he now gets a better education which he wasn’t getting before. It is through this sponsorship program that he now has a uniform, socks and shoes he didn’t have before getting a sponsor. He says that he used to go to school barefoot and wore a torn uniform but now he is always smart in his shoes, socks and a school uniform. He is now getting lunch at school unlike before when he used to go back home for lunch and most time don’t find lunch there and end eating sugarcane for lunch.
He prays for his sponsor to get more blessings and achieve their family goals in life.
