Aipha lives with his mother, his brother and sister, in a five-room mud-brick structure in Sabongari, Cameroon. His father passed away, and his mother is struggling to provide the basic needs of her family. Aipha is in grade six at the Catholic Primary School in Likhop and his best subjects are English and Health. His favourite activities are reading and playing soccer. At home, he is responsible for collecting firewood for his family. Aipha would like to become a pilot someday. At the Kumbo Sponsor Site, the Sisters of St. Therese of the Child Jesus use sponsorship funds to provide children with proper nutrition and medical care.
