Where did you run from?
Where do you plan to go?
Wherever opportunity arises.
What do you wish you could have taken with you? And why do you still dream of it?
My school books. I had all my academic lessons written in them. Even though there is free education at Nyumanzi primary school, I don’t know where to start. It is a new syllabus and I am not used to it.
What is your favourite item now? And what makes this item very precious?
My job. I earn 15,000 Ugandan shillings (US$6) every day. I can now buy most basics like food, soap, clothes and other things.
