Clever is a young boy living in Uganda who has a desire to be a pilot when he grows up! Within the past couple of years, he lost his father in a tragic motor accident. This accident left Clever’s mother to raise him and his little sister as a single mom. At the time of his father’s death, Clever’s mother was a homemaker and did not have a source of income. While she now works as a part-time laborer trying to provide for her children, she struggles to make ends meet. Sponsoring Clever through AMG would provide him with educational support, teaching from God’s Word, and nutritious food. Thank you for playing a role in Clever’s life and contributing to his spiritual and physical growth!
