Gilbert lives with his parents, siblings, and cousins in a village called Bukaya. He is inquisitive, always asking one question after another. When he comes home from school, he is full of stories and loves sharing what he learned that day with his mother.
Gilbert likes going to school because he enjoys learning and playing with his friends George, Kisembo, Marvin, James, and Ivan. In his free time, Gilbert also likes to play with his younger brother Innocent. He watches over Innocent, and even shares jackfruit – a big, sticky, delicious fruit – with him.
