For Holy Week, Agape House would like to introduce our student spotlight Khumbo Pahumba. He is fourteen years old. Sadly, Khumbo is an orphan as his father passed away at five years old and was abandoned by his mother shortly after. He has had to work on the streets for six years and was unable to continue schooling after fourth grade.
