Joseph Wekesa

Joseph’s mother and father both died of Aids when he was just a young boy. He was then left in the care of his older brother, who had no job and no money. When it rained, the family would frantically search for a place to take shelter because their home was unsafe. Nevertheless, when Joseph joined the Horizon family, he finally had the chance to be a kid again. He likes learning how to cook, especially chicken, and he dreams of becoming an electrical engineer.

More About Child Sponsorship
How long will my sponsorship last?
Sponsorship is more than just a monetary gift, it’s a relationship. But your sponsorship lasts as long as you’d like. If you cannot continue to sponsor your child, they will continue to receive care as we diligently search for a new sponsor.
What are shares?
Am I my child’s only sponsor?
