Ball hockey breaks through Uganda

Africans take pride in their traditions. But for Amon Matthew, the African tradition meant absolutely nothing to him. Just when he was seven years of age, he opted to learn the foreign culture. He read and watched Spanish books and movies. Within a short period of time, Matthew taught himself to speak Spanish fluently. The language earned him friendship with Jean Chamberlain because she was in awe to see an African boy speaking Spanish. Through Chamberlain, a Canadian doctor, who headed the Save the Mothers programme at Uganda Christian University for a decade, Matthew won the friendship of a small Canadian community at the university.
