A Hungry little soul….

This small boy seemed to take to me..His name is Demba..
He is one of the many Koranic students who have to leave their families to come into Diema to learn the Koran.
Demba really struggles to speak in any of our local languages…is incredibly softly spoken , yet feels strong enough to come into our compound twice a day looking for some small thing to eat..
Yesterday I was able to dress him in a new football kit..
See the difference…
He also shared out local Baobab cold drink, and really enjoyed a few minutes reprieve from the hard life he has right now..
Begging on the Crossroads..

In the past I’ve spoken with our Inman and tried to stop this from happening, by encouraging various projects..but it’s a habit not easily broken….
