Makumbi Elivis – sponsored

is a 4-year-old boy who hopes to go to school

Elivis lost both of his parents to HIV/AIDS so he lives with his elderly grandmother, two cousins, his sister and his older brother. The family is too large for the caregiver to provide for properly. The family lives in abject poverty such that it is difficult for them to even get daily basic needs met. They have a small area of land on which they grow food crops, and it’s enough to feed the family and sometimes leave a little left over to sell at the market. His grandmother tries very hard to collect funds for her grandchildren’s education, but often fails due to lack of scholastic materials and other school needs. Elivis needs a sponsor to help support his education.
