Praise for doing well is a huge boost to a youngster's confidence.

Like many of the children in our family, Gift had little schooling before he came into the care of our Happy House.

He tries hard and Pat Johnson, a member of his sponsor family, sent a donation to buy a treat as a way of recognising his efforts .

Treats are shared with the whole family and Gift was asked to choose what he would like. Pineapple was his choice and just how delicious it looks.

Thank you Pat for your kindness and for making one boy and all his "brothers" and "sisters" very happy indeed!
