Fackson is a 9 year old boy who lives with his aunt in the Bauleni Housing Compound in Lusaka. He was born in the Central Province of Zambia. Fackson's mother died when he was 6 years old, this is when he began living with his aunt. His aunt works in a local tavern where she sells Chibuku (a corn based alcohol.) She doesn't know where his father is. We are told that Fackson has always been healthy, except for being hungry. Food is a problem for the family. They usually eat once a day, but sometimes go the entire day without any food. Frackson's aunt says that education would be a problem if it weren't for RHO Appleseed School.
We were able to take Fackson shopping for clothes and shoes, thanks to his sponsorship. He had a great day of firsts. First time in a shopping mall, first time on an escalator and an elevator, first time buying new clothes, and many more!
