Meet Joshua

Joshua joined HALO in 2018
Joshua joined HALO in 2018

Please meet Joshua. He is a part of the HALO Kibuli Home in Uganda. Joshua’s life on the street before HALO was very difficult.  He was often unsure of where his next meal would come from, and he was not in school. 

In 2018, Joshua was recruited into the HALO Home where for the past three years, he has 3 meals a day, a roof over his head with caretakers, mentors and counselors to support his wellbeing. This would not be possible without supporters like you. 

Being a part of HALO, means having opportunities that enrich your life, and that many others get from having the foundational support of family. For Joshua, that means having opportunities just this past year alone, where he was invited to perform and participate in a large Psycho Social Support Forum, as well as attend an end of year camp with his peers and mentors to celebrate the accomplishments and hardships they have endured over the past year.  

HALO is so proud of the growth that we have seen in Joshua since coming to HALO, and we are so excited for him to start school again in January after a long break due to the pandemic. Joshua stayed committed to his studies and his reading skills during the break and cannot wait to get started again in the new year. 

Wishing you and yours a wonderful Holiday Season. Thank you for supporting kids just like Joshua.
