Joseph Mboneko was orphaned by HIV/AIDS at age 13 and faced a very uncertain future with no means to attend school. KIDA embraced him : restored his hope, counseled him, provided medical care, supported his school fees and his vocational training from 2006 to 2013.  Since then he has been working as a motorcycle mechanic while saving money in a wooden box under his bed. After two years of saving, he had enough to purchase his own motorcycle!  Now he has an additional earning potential: giving "boda boda" rides to customers in need of transport over dirt roads around the Ruwenzori hilly terrain.
