William lives in Khundi Village with his mom and six sisters. His father left the family years ago. His oldest sister supports the family by cleaning for others. He is the youngest in the family. He walks to school each day because his family does not have money for transportation. William enjoys playing football (soccer) as a midfielder. He has a special talent for singing.

William academic strengths are in history, social studies, and geography. He is challenged by chemistry, physics, and math. There are not enough books for all the students in his school, which makes it hard for him to study. William’s goal for the future is to become a lawyer. He will work hard and would appreciate support from Good Soil Partners for tuition fees, books, and supplies.

William G. Update!

Life has thrown some challenges at William, but even still, he is very happy that he has passed his classes and been able to stay on a Good Soil Partner scholarship. Last term, the classes that brought him the most challenges were Math and Science. He has had improvement in all of his classes though, including Math and Science, and we are very proud of him!

William has some really great friends that help him with his school work. They all understand the value of doing well in school and keeping the GSP scholarship. William, in turn, helps out students who struggle in classes that he thrives in!

Way to go William!
