Meet Musa*

Musa* is 17 years old. Sadly, both of Musa’s parents died when he was younger, and he grew up being looked after by his older brother and sister.

However, they had no real means of getting money, and could not afford to pay his school fees, especially since secondary school is more expensive than primary school. Each day, while they went out to look for work, they asked him to sit at home. Eventually, bored and wanting to follow his friends, Musa ended up on the streets.

He spent two years living on the streets of Jinja. Here, he collected scrap metal to sell, or found building work, to earn a little money for food. He dreamt of going back to school.

After getting to know S.A.L.V.E. staff on their regular street walks, he shared his passion that he would like to go back to school. Musa had enjoyed studying Chemistry, Biology and English.

S.A.L.V.E. staff helped him contact an Aunt and Uncle, and now, he happily stays with them, however they are unable to pay for his school fees. Musa would like to become a lawyer one day.

Could you sponsor Musa for 25 pounds a month and give him the chance to create a brighter future full of opportunities?
