Review for Connect Africa Foundation Inc, Newton Centre, MA, USA
My name is Ssenoga John. I live at Kyaliwajjala in Uganda. I would like to tell you about Connect Africa Foundation and Lynn and Charles who have given me and my family hope in life, and are continuing .
Life is not easy on this planet earth more especially when you lose your parents. I came to realise when i lost my father Samuel Ssenoga in 2005 when I was 10 years old. Life became desperate with only my mother having to take care of five of us. She was a subsistence farmer and a local brewer. Life changed when my mother received a home-based nurse who introduced her to Connect Africa Foundation early 2006. One day Lynn and uncle Charles the founders of CAF visited us at home. They discussed many things and out of what they discussed came school fees for me, and a microloan for my mother to strengthen her small business of brewing local beer. She then improved from brewing 8 Jerricans on local brew to 20 Jerricans a month.
Connect Africa Foundation additionally started giving us clothes, the whole family. We then knew we had safe custody under Connect Africa Foundation. Lynn and Charles continued to bring nice white friends to our home to check on us. I was also introduced to other Connect Africa sponsored children and we got to share joy and happy times together.
My mother's business boomed and with the profits she was able to put windows in our house which had no windows. We started living in a nicer home, less mosquitoes would come in to eat us as we slept. In 2009, Connect Africa sponsored me to attend a very nice school in Kampala which ranks among the best schools academically in Uganda. I am so very grateful to Connect Africa. May Connect Africa live long and sponsor more children and families like mine. There are so many desperate families here in our community who would was support from Connect Africa. Thank you so much Lynn and Charles.
