On Saturdays, you can find Silas hanging out with his friends on the playground of Amazima. The big smile on his face and his playful energy makes it hard to imagine that his father recently experienced a motorcycle accident, leaving him in the care of his grandmother who also provides for 14 other children. With the help of Amazima, 9 of those children are able to go to school, meals are accounted for in the home and Silas’s father is recovering because of excellent medical attention. We sat down with Silas recently to ask him a handful of questions!
