aaron's STORY:

Aaron’s parents died of AIDS when he was very young. He then moved  with his aunt who was HIV positive, but she was unable to provide for him. Aaron eventually moved to the streets to find food in dumpsters or to steal it. Aaron lived on the street for four years before he was rescued by Saving Grace.

Aaron has overcome extreme adversity to become a successful young man. He is consistently ranked at the top of his school classes and is a gifted communicator. He thinks deeply about societal issues and is very creative. He also enjoys playing the drums during worship time at the village. He is a leader at the village and when he is not at secondary school is a huge help to Uncle Fred. Aaron is very selfless and would drop anything to help those in need. When Aaron grows up he would like to be a primary school headmaster.
