Dominic Omwenga was born on 6th August 2011. Dominic and the family live in the Satellite-Kwa maji area. The child is the firstborn in a family of two. They stay with their mother since she separated from their father. The mother is, therefore, the sole breadwinner of the family. She does casual work like washing other people’s clothes in the community to make a living.
The family lives in a single room house made of iron sheets and timber. The house has electricity connected to it and therefore, the family can use it at night to do their various work. Their house is not self-contained and therefore, the family gets to fetch water for domestic use from the nearest water vendors at KES10 per twenty liters jerican. They also share the washroom with their neighbors. The family uses charcoal jiko to prepare their meals because it is the most affordable to the family. Dominic shares a bed each night with his other sibling and mother.
Dominic is a student at Klevia School. The child is in grade three and would like to be a pilot when he is done with his studies. In his recent selection interview, he managed to score a total of 400 out of a possible 500 marks. He likes to play soccer with his friends during his free time. The child will be able to join Jagiet Academy when he gets a sponsor and be able to benefit from quality education.
