Nabuduwa Esther in Uganda

Nabuduwa Esther
August 30, 2007

We began sponsoring Esther in January of 2014. Since then we have received 37 letters. I don't remember exactly how Esther's sponsorship came about, but I know I was drawn to her because of her name...One of my grandmother's was named Esther and I've always loved the name.

Esther's parents are very young and she has a younger sister, Mary. In another letter she reports that she has 3 brothers and 2 sisters. She attends UG 836 Buyobo CDC and goes to the project 3 times a week. She enjoys the project and church programs very much.
