He takes literacy and mathematics classes, and also participates in music, dance and agriculture classes at the center.
Through the guidance of leadership class at EHU, Kintu has been able to build confidence, discover his purpose, and begin working towards achieving his goals.

When Kintu’s mother remarried a few years ago, he was no longer welcome in the home of her new husband and was forced to relocate. He came to Jinja hoping to live with his sister, and stayed as long as he was able to. Kintu came to Enhance Humanity Uganda years ago seeking guidance and support when he no longer had family to depend on to help him survive. He’s been living in EHU emergency housing since.
