Alex's story

Alex is an old man living in Masindi, Uganda. He is a married father of four children and very hardworking. He has been engaged in carpentry for the past 10 years along with farming to enable him to look after his family. With the proceeds he has been able to construct a semi-permanent house and pay school fees for his children.

His dreams are to own a big carpentry training workshop and to educate his children to attain degrees as a minimum qualification.
