In Destitute Ugandan Town, Jack Black Finds Hope in a Homeless Boy

Recently, actor Jack Black traveled to Uganda to meet with underprivileged children as part of the Red Nose Day Campaign. In a town besieged by staggering poverty, Black met a 12-year-old homeless boy named Felix. Felix’s mother is deceased and he’s never met his father, so he resorts to recycling plastic bottles every day to make enough money to eat. At night, he sleeps outdoors among strangers in an unsanitary camp riddled with garbage.
Although Felix struggles on a daily basis just to survive, his spirit still hasn’t been broken. He has just one wish—to be able to learn in school.
