Jasper’s story is all too common in rural Uganda, but the story he is building for himself, is not.

His father is alive, but has no job, doesn’t look for any, and brings home nothing, leaving the entire burden of feeding his three children to his wife.

Jasper’s mother is illiterate, so all she can do is work in others’ vegetable gardens to make a little money and bring home a little food

Jasper, however, is shooting for the stars!  He ranks 2nd in his third-grade class, competing for the #1 position with another, recently sponsored child.

Jasper may be young, but he knows what he needs to do to open doors to a real future.  Help him shine.
