Location: Kiburara, Uganda
Japhan’s father died of complications related to high blood pressure in 2016. This left him and his four siblings in the sole care of their mother, who doesn’t own land and struggles to provide for her family by growing crops on rented land. Thankfully, Japhan is a healthy boy and has been able to remain in school in spite of financial challenges. He is currently in 3rd grade at a local primary school.
Japhan lives in a village near Kiburara, Uganda. Runyankore and Rukiga are the main languages spoken in this area. Kiburara is also home to Hope Community School, established by Covenant Mercies in 2020.
