Get to Know an SOS Child: Jones
This is Jones. Jones lives in the SOS Children’s Village in Basse, The Gambia, with his nine brothers and sisters. At 14, he’s one of the oldest children in his family. He loves to cook, and often helps his SOS mother prepare the family’s meals. He’s also a natural athlete, and thanks to the extracurricular activities provided through the SOS school in Basse, he has the opportunity to play for an organized football team. Being able to play for the Basse team means that he can get proper coaching and training, allowing him to learn discipline and teamwork, and channel his energy in a positive way.
