Meet Ronald, our very friendly 13 year old Parabongo question master!
Ronald lives with his Mum Florence and Dad Timor (who is a farmer) his two brothers and one sister. He did have three other brothers and a sister, but they died before they ever got the chance to go to school.

Thanks to a fantastic sponsor in the UK, Ronald was able to pass his primary school exam is now at secondary school in Kampala.
Ronald is very bright – he speaks, reads and writes English and when he grows up he wants to go to university to study agriculture so that he can return to his village and serve his community.
