Scholar since 2010

Ronald is full of energy and always ready to help!

Ronald parents struggle to make ends meet. They not only support 10 children, but also extended family that also lives with Ronald. The oldest children had to drop out of school to help the family. Ronald feels very lucky to be studying. He wants to be a firefighter when he grows up.

Ronald is very shy. He speaks in a whisper. BECAS’s social worker, Lili, is working hard to improve Ronald’s self esteem. Through games, field trips, community service activities, and playing with the other scholars, Ronald is finding his voice. Recently, BECAS switched Ronald from a school that practices corporal punishment to a smaller school, where we hope Ronald can find his voice. We are thrilled to continue to work with Ronald and his family this year and for many more.
