"I am 9 years old now. I am in primary two [second grade] at St. Kizito Sabina Boarding Primary School. After my studies I want to become a doctor. My best subjects are math, English, and Luganda [A Ugandan language]. I also love dancing and singing. When I am not at school, I like running around and digging."

"I’m in primary four [fourth grade] now. We have just finished doing mid-term exams which I hope to pass well. St. Kizito Sabina Boarding Primary School is my school. I love my teachers and classmates. In fact I want to become a medical doctor. I like eating bananas, cassava, and juicy fruits. Bananas are common in our area. My hobbies are playing football, reading novels about politicians and people’s life. I also enjoy singing."

- Stella Akello, Age 10
"I am in primary five [fifth grade]. In primary five we learn English grammar, English comprehension, math, science, and religious education. I like English grammar because my teacher is good. I don’t like math because it is difficult and tricky. My best game is basketball. When I grow up I want to be a teacher because we don’t have enough teachers."
- Sylvia Nakamate, Age 14
"I enjoy reading novels, playing football, listening to music, and playing netball. I also enjoy eating meat, matooke [a banana dish], and posho [a corn meal dish]. In the future I hope to be a nurse."
