Emmanuel has successfully progressed to the seventh grade, maintaining his diligent work ethic both within and outside of school. His day begins with assisting in fetching water from the well and preparing his siblings for school before starting on his own educational journey. Despite the demands of his busy schedule, Emmanuel eagerly immerses himself in the pursuit of knowledge, cherishing every moment spent in the classroom.

After school, his responsibilities extend to either assisting his family or engaging in part-time work, showcasing his unwavering commitment to supporting his loved ones. Despite the challenges, Emmanuel finds solace and fulfillment in his academic endeavors, recognizing the invaluable role education plays in shaping his future.

Residing with his mother, Emmanuel remains steadfast in his dream of becoming a computer analyst, fueled by a passion for technology and a determination to succeed. His dedication serves as a testament to his resilience and determination.



Emmanuel was promoted to 6th grade! His favorite subject is English.  Emmanuel dreams of being able to fully support his family one day. For now, he’s doing the best he can, by going to school and afterwards, working at a motorcycle shop.  He uses any profit for food for him, his mother, and siblings. He is also the soccer captain for his school.  He still wants to be a computer analyst when he grows up and continues to reside with his mother. Sponsored by: Kathleen Konicek
