"Being at home is, having fun with someone who loves you". Derrick, 17 lost both parents when he was young and moved to live with his Aunt, he was unable to attend school and started washing dishes in a local restaurant to earn a living. Lessons for Life through our partner Child Aid Uganda (CHAU) provided the money for his schools fees so he could return to school.
