Alex Nkono

Educational Scholarship

Place: Uganda


Alex is a nine year old boy living in Nakabango Village. Since the unfortunate passing of both Alex's parents, Alex has been living with his Aunt Nora and ten siblings and cousins. Alex is a beloved member of the household and loves helping out with domestic chores, especially fetching water. With a family this big every member has to pull their own weight. 

Alex has been attending school inconsistently for the past few years but has high hopes of continuing his education to one day become a vehicle mechanic. 

Alex loves playing soccer with his many cousins, whom he considers siblings. Alex looks forward to joining them in school soon. Alex says that dreaming of a Global Belief Project Scholarship brings a smile to his face and gladness to his heart.
