Akoss (ak-ash) is one of the sweetest children I have ever met. He is eager to love everyone, warming up to me almost the instant we met last August, 2012. When he isn't dancing around putting a smile on people's faces, you can find him happily helping Meena Auntie and the other Didis at Asha Mission with the daily chores that are essential to keeping the home running smoothly. He studies diligently during homework time and is quickly learning English. He is such a joyful little boy and deserves the best from life. Plus, check out his awesome festive sweater. The kid's got style.
