James is an orphan born on January 1st 2000 and raised up in the Eastern province. The Eastern province is known to be a place which has frequent seasons of drought and famine. He goes to Syumbuni primary school when they can afford to send him. James lives with his uncle who is a peasant farmer. James’ uncle is struggling to bring up his own children because of the famine. He is, however, hopeful for his future and at one instance when we went to see him he requested whether he could come with us so that he can be consistent in school. James is rather quiet and always seems lost in deep thoughts.
James has found a sponsor but would love to see his friends sponsored. Please consider sponsoring a different child.
