A fingerprint makes its unique mark, leaves evidence, a personal seal, a signature of consent or approval. Fingerprints in Uganda makes its mark leaving evidence of caring by sharing in improving the lives of children in Jinja.
My name is Ben and I met The Hills when I attended Butaguya Primary School. I ran barefooted for my school and won the county championships. When it came to the Nationals, everyone else had trainers. The hot earth burnt through the soles of my feet so I didn’t win. A kind family in Bristol later bought me trainers.
Fingerprints in Uganda pay for my education at Secondary school, but I fund uniform and stationery myself, by picking sugarcane at the weekends.
