Lazaro Michael

DOB 2001? Lazaro is fully sponsored by the Wardell Family!

Came under Tumaini care September, 2009.

Lazaro and younger brother  Stephano have lost both of their parents.  When we met them they were sharing a one room hut with their uncle, aunt, and two cousins, in Usa River. Uncle (Lawrence) was a night watchman but was unable to earn enough to support both his immediate and his extended families sufficiently. As a result, everyone suffered.

He is a very quiet young man, and often the heartache of losing his parents is reflected in his eyes. It is painful to observe how many of the children of Usa River reflect that same hopeless sadness.

Lazaro attends Haradali Primary School and shines in his class!  He has performed consistently in the top ten in his class and has reached as high as number three.  He is a serious student and a very skilled craftsman who, like so many in his tribe are artists at making spears and slingshots!  Woe are the birds in our neighbourhood!
