The following is a story sent to us by our Assistant Sponsorship Coordinator, Mariah.
Lydia Bugonzi is a 12 year old girl in primary five who enjoys netball and wants to be a teacher after her studies. Lydia was inspired to become a teacher in the future by her class teacher she loves so much. She wants to thank Lynn Sheerin for sponsoring her and sending with Julie Stroder a pack for her each time she visits Uganda.
Lydia is very happy to be on the sponsorship program because of the privileges she now gets; her tuition is paid in time, she gets a school uniform, socks and shoes every year with lunch everyday at school. She used to go back home for lunch before she got sponsored but now she doesn’t have to, all thanks to Lynn. She would also walk from home to school bare foot but she now has shoes “Thank you very much Lynn, may God bless you and your family”, said Lydia.
