My name is Hassan Abdallah, I am from a polygamist family with eight children. My mom died when I was in standard five. Since then we stayed with my stepmother till I finished standard seven as completing primary level education.
My father did not want to send me to school and no one could tell him to send me to school because my mother had already passed away when I was in standard five.
Vincent Muwonge joined Education Matters 7 years ago, when he was in the fifth grade of primary school at the Divine Mission Junior School. He was absorbed into the sponsorship program of our organization, when we discovered that he is an orphan child and the people he used to stay with couldn’t afford his school fees anymore. Since then, Education Matters took over his school fees at the Divine Mission Junior School.
