Travis Is Thriving in Uganda

By Lauren Anderson, Wednesday March 25, 2020

Travis is an 11-year-old boy who was born in Najja sub-county, Buikwe District. After leaving his home due to physical, emotional, and psychological abuse by his step-mother, he was found during a street walk activity conducted by the Jinja Connection Social Work Team. The team helped facilitate a mediatory engagement with his family, which resulted in Travis returning home on in January of last year. Jinja Connection has continued to follow-up with Travis and his family to ensure that he is safe and that his reintegration was going well. 

Currently, Travis is enrolled in Primary Three and will be joining Primary Four in 2020, with help from the Impact Uganda scholarship program.
