Arthur’s Story

    I was born in 2000 in a village called Budoma. I have one older brother, Allan. We had another brother and sister but they both died of illness when I was young. My father is a good man but he would abuse alcohol so much. When he would take alcohol, he could beat my mother and Allan and me. My mother would fight with my father so much. Then, in 2007 my mother left my father and her sons in the village.

    Sometime after this, my father and Allan went to live with my uncle in Bugembe. This was so my dad could get healed of his illness with alcohol and so that Allan could study. I stayed in the village for another year until my auntie came for me so that I could study also.

    Me and my brother Allan were able to study with Peace for Paul in 2011. My school is so good and I like my life so much. I want to be a pilot so that I can help my family in the village someday.
