This is Rachid. He lives in Morocco. He is about 15 years old. He is an orphan. But, the SOS Children’s Village cares for him.

He doesn’t have much and giving him a jump rope makes his day. We played tennis and I learned that he smiles wider than any child I’ve ever met.

He asked for my phone number. He made me laugh.

He ran after me when I had to leave. He gave me a drawing of a castle. It’s an original print by Rachid himself.

I realized he would never live in a castle.

I want to give him a castle. I think he deserves one.

Rachid was my first taste of Morocco.
