Waiting for a Sponsor: Niringiyimana

Update: Niringiyimana was sponsored one day after this post by "Amy from Wisconsin". Praise God!

Meet Niringiyimana. This little guy looks like he's trying to tell the photographer something!
His information reads
 
"Niringiyimana lives with his father and his mother (in Rwanda).  He is responsible for running errands. His father is sometimes employed as a farmer and his mother is sometimes employed as a farmer. There are 3 children in the family.
For fun, Niringiyimana enjoys playing ball games. He attends church activities regularly and is in kindergarten where his performance is average."
 
His information also tells a bit about the area he lives in.
 
He lives on the plains of  Kabare. Typical houses in this area are constructed of dirt or cement floors, mud or brick walls and tin roofs.
On a daily basis, Niringiyimana's diet probably consists of items such as maize, beans, bananas, rice, and potatoes.
 
Niringiyimana lives in an AIDS-affected area. He is in desperate need of a sponsor, but he has been waiting for 392 days for one. I can only imagine that he and his family are running out of hope that one will come along.
In just a few months, on July 25, Niringiyimana will turn 5 years old. What better gift could he be given than that of a sponsor and friend in time for his birthday?
