Viany Ssematimba

"I want to play soccer all the time."

At such a young age, all Viany thinks about is playing.  His future goal is to be a soccer player and his favorite thing to do right now is, of course, play soccer.  For Viany, thoughts of school, work, etc. are far from his mind and rightly should be for a 4 year old.

Although Viany is fortunate enough to live with both parents, neither parent makes enough money to provide for Viany and his 3 sisters.  His father is the only one who has a job, working as a school cook and making less than $2 a day.  When Viany can attend school, he is in the ‘baby class’ or preschool and likes to draw with the colors red and yellow.  He is learning how to count and enjoys saying the alphabet.
