Charles Byekwaso is very shy, but as he speaks his face often lights up with a lovely smile. When he was seven, both his parents passed away, and Charles moved to the Cosma Foundation house. He has lived there ever since.

When at home, Charles likes to look after animals such as pigs, chickens and rabbits, and also helps fetch water for home use. He walks three miles each way to attend school every day. He has three best friends at school, and they enjoy reading books and playing football together. He does especially well in science, and when he grows up he hopes to become an engineer, working on roads and city planning.
