Tanzania / BUSH

BUSH, 13

Bush is 13 years old and was born in the Dar es Salaam region. Bush wants to become a Pilot and so he has been putting extra effort into both Mathematics and Science. In his spare time, he practices how to draw and read maps to build his knowledge of map reading and navigation. Bush lives with his parents and his two siblings in his grandfather’s house. His parents do not have jobs so they earn a living by selling food on the street.  Bush is hopeful that he will find a sponsor who can support him in secondary education as his parents will struggle to be able to support him in his education which might mean he cannot continue his studies.
