Meet Mary

By Asiimwe Venansio | Uganda Program Manager


Mary is 12 years old. She is the sixth born in a family of nine children and lost her father at the age of 8 years old. Her mother does not have a stable source of income to take care of her, along with her eight siblings. Mary's older siblings left to find survival on their own, and Mary stayed to work and provide for her remaining family while her mother also worked on farms to be able to feed her family. At the time, they lived in two small huts and had no close neighbors.

Mary joined the HALO family in 2018 and lives in the HALO Lungujja Home. Mary loves to play indoor games like chess, ‘mweso’ a local game and enjoys animated movies. She is a very hard working girl, responsible and good at executing tasks given to her, a good mobilizer, a great cook and has greatly improved in her spoken English and expression of herself. She talks so fast and is a comic story teller and many of her fellow girls in the home enjoy her company. Mary is in primary 4 this year at school, and her dream is to become a doctor. She wants to one day be able to change the living standard of her family as she believes she will always be the pillar of her family. Thank you for serving as the foundation of a family and providing education to children who need it most.
