Wisdom Mukusuma is an 8th grader who came to HDCS in 7th grade from one of the ACE FaithWorks community primary schools. Both of Wisdom’s parents passed away years ago and he was living with his grandmother and older brother. His grandmother sells roasted peanuts by the side of the road and his brother supplemented the family’s income with odd jobs. Unfortunately, Wisdom’s brother died from COVID-19 last year which was emotionally and financially hard for the family.
Thankfully, education at HDCS is supplemented so it’s not necessary for students to pay for school fees, books, or uniforms. Students also receive a hot lunch each day which for many is the main meal of the day. Wisdom does incredibly well in school, despite the hardships in his life. His goal is to graduate from high school and attend university. When he succeeds, he will be the first in his family to graduate from primary school.
