Birthday: April 5, 2000 Sponsorship#: 2019-00-046HC 

Roberson is a kind and hard working nineteen year old who is only in the 5th grade because he only gets to go to school when he is able to work a few odd jobs and save up money to pay his tuition. Finding work in his village is not easy. He lives with his aunt who has seven children of her own and she has no source of income. He doesn’t like having to depend on her to support him, but he has no other family to help him either. His parents died when he was four years old and he moved from house to house for several years before he finally ended up with his aunt. Roberson loves to go to school and he loves to help his cousin, Johnny, work odd jobs at Hope Center. He enjoys taking care of livestock like goats, pigs, and chickens, and he also enjoys gardening. He hopes to be a construction engineer when he grows up because he feels like there will always be people needing to build things so finding work shouldn’t be too hard. All he wants to do is learn all he can so that he can one day provide for himself and his family. The only way he is going to be able to finish school at this point without losing any more time is if he he has a sponsor. He really, really wants a sponsor so that he can finish school and start providing for himself.
