My Story

**Michael is the 2nd born in his family living with both parents and siblings in 2 two grass thatched houses. One single house is for the parents and the other house is for the 5 children.** **Both Michael’s father and stepmother are peasant farmers who grow crops such as maize, beans, sorghum and cassava (root tuber) in their home garden for both home consumption and to sell. They can for example harvest three bags of Maize/corn out of the entire season, each bag weighing 100kgs and sell two bags, each at UGX.50000 ($14.29) and leave one bag for home consumption.** **The money Michael’s parents earn from selling some of their yields is used topay for their basic needs at home and also to send the kids to school, but it’s not enough hence needing help with their child’s education.**
