Starting from a young age, Jeff suffered from jiggers. Jiggers are little insects that nestle themselves under your skin and lay eggs there. This inflames the skin, which has significant consequences for your health. Because of the infection in his feet and buttocks, Jeff often could not go to school, as he was not able to sit or walk properly. Many children and adults in Jeff’s neighborhood have the same problems.

When Jeff was 9, he decided to take action. What did he do to fight against the jiggers? Read more about Jeff’s changemaking project here.

In the future, Jeff wants to keep helping both children and adults to change their lives. His mission is to put a smile on everyone’s face.
