My name is Agnes Kalaba. I am doing grade ten (10) at DAPP Children’s Town. I have been at DAPP Children’s Town for seven (7) years. I would like to thank Global Giving for what you have done for vulnerable people, especially for us children at DAPP Children’s Town.

I hope you will continue to support us because we really love what you are doing for us. Your help means a lot to us children in the Children’s Town. Lastly, I would like to say never get tired always remember that there are children in the Children’s Town. We love you. God bless your work always.
