When six-year-old Ryan Hreljac decided to raise money to build a well in Africa, his parents were encouraging but didn't expect him to stick with it. Much to their surprise, Ryan persevered, doing chores for pay, holding fundraisers, and speaking to lots of people. A few years later he was in Uganda, cutting the ribbon on the well he had built near a school-and meeting his Ugandan pen pal, Akana Jimmy. That was just the beginning of Ryan and Jimmy's friendship. Full-color illustrations and photographs. Epilogue.
