Jean Paul T.
Location: Nyakabanda, Rwanda
Sponsorship need: Primary School ($500)
When he is older, Jean Paul wants to be a Rwandan soldier.
11-year-old Jean Paul Turatsinze lives with his mother and is the fourth youngest of six children living in the house. Because his father left the family, Jean Paul’s mother is completely responsible for providing an income and caring for her children. She currently does governmental work with the VUP and has managed to get all of her children into school. The financial drain of the school fees, however, means that sometimes money for food is hard to come by. Jean Paul loves his mom very much, but sometimes has to go to bed without eating because there are so many kids in the house. When he grows up, Jean Paul hopes to become a Rwandan Soldier. Outside of school, he loves football and cheering on his favorite team: Chelsea!
