His smile slowly spreads across his face as he follows you around incessantly.
His name is Sempala and he is definitely what we could refer to as “an old soul”.
At the age of 4, Sempala decided he needed to be sponsored by Amazima. His parents were out of the picture, he was being raised by his grandparents, and his mind was made up.
So what did he do? He just started coming. He came to Saturday program. He went to an Amazima school. On a field trip day he was the first child to show up, with everything ready and in place for him to join the group. It was amazing to see the tenacity of such a young child. So, obviously, we were left with no choice. Sempala was officially added to Amazima sponsorship, and we have delighted in the decision every day since. He is relentless, sweet, charming, and hilarious.
Here’s to you, Sempala! You make all of our lives happier.
