The son of a friend is good natured despite his deformed hand and foot. He is a hard worker both at home and at school but his future remains uncertain. Free education ends with primary school. Without proper secondary education, a disabled adult--who cannot work in the fields--has no alternative to full-time begging. Sponsored education, through the end of secondary school, could provide many opportunities for this young boy.
