Bryan loves learning, and has been working with his mother outside of school to accelerate his reading abilities. All the hard work really paid off, as he was honored as one of the top students in this year's Independence Day Parade. Sponsorship helped cover the costs of the parade, and allowed Bryan to get seen by the doctor when his finger was accidentally smashed at school. His family has also received food aid, as prices continue to be high after the drought that damaged crops earlier this year.
