Meet Steven!


Greetings friends,

I hope this finds you well wherever you may be this weekend 🙂

As mentioned, we promised to introduce you to our growing family at the Refuge Home in Masaka!  Most recently, we introduced you to Robert, and Timothy.  We are thankful to all of you who have taken an interest in supporting these young men.  Together Everyone Achieves More (T.E.A.M.)! 

Today, we’d like to introduce you to a very bright young man, Steven:

 Steven is a very bright, cheerful 14 year old young man.  He is currently in Primary level six (6) (equivalent to Grade 6 in Canada) and is very focused on completing this year of schooling on a high note.  Next year in February he will be going into Primary level seven (7) which is a very serious level in all primary schools in Uganda because it is the final year of primary school.  Throughout the school year students are faced with exams, especially at the end of the year, where they will sit for the Primary Leaving Exams (P.L.E.) which will determine whether or not a student will continue on into secondary school.  It is alot of studying and alot of pressure on students!


However, when having a sponsor that is supporting a student helps one to focus more on their studies rather than wondering if their fees or supplies will also be available for one to continue studying.  Unfortunately, many bright students never even get the chance to continue with school, not because of low grades, but because of a lack of school fees and supplies.  Today, we are thanking the Lord for Steven because he is very well-behaved young man with a great motivation to do well in everything that he does, including school.  He’s not the biggest fan of mathematics but that has not stopped him from trying his very best.  So, we’re reaching out to you today to stand with us and Steven in prayer and support as he looks to a brighter, successful future.

Steven comes from a family with 3 siblings and one mother.  His father passed away, therefore, his mother has struggled and suffered to keep her children in school and fed.  Steven’s older brother, Michael, came to us asking if we may be able to help his younger siblings, including Steven, as he was disturbed seeing them out of school and in suffering conditions.  When we went to their home in the village to assess the situation we were surprised at the living conditions and immediately knew that we had to intervene and alleviate some of the pressure that has been heavy on Steven’s mother to care for her children that have been in need.  This is where Steven got involved with SYF as a residential student at our Refuge Home.  When we called his mother to inform her that we were going to do our best to help Steven she was over-joyed and excited because she knew that her son would be able to pursue his dreams. What a sacrifice of a loving mother who wants the best for her child!

We thank the Lord for this opportunity to bless others in need, and their families.  If your there reading this and you believe that God is leading you to support Steven, or any of the other students, as a sponsor or to contribute to his schooling needs and upkeep, please click here or visit our website here, https://sowetoyouthfellowship.org/about-2/partner/ and check out Steven’s profile.
