Arafat Waidha

Educational Scholarship

Place: Uganda


Arafat is eleven years old and lives in Mauuta Village in Uganda, with his five siblings and parents. Arafat plays the most with his twelve year old twin brothers. He enjoys playing hide-and-go-seek, fetching water, washing utensils, and most of all dancing.  

Arafat dreams of being a doctor at a health clinic. Arafat has unfortunately, had a lot of experience at such places due to his epilepsy caused by malaria as a young child. 

Arafat is upbeat and outgoing and has a way of brightening every room he enters. As you can see, just one flash of that super star smile will do it!
