Macarius’ father passed away and as a result, his mother struggled to care for him. His father’s passing took a toll on his academic and social life. Macarius now lives with his aunt and uncle in the Kabiria area slums. The family lives in a single-room house made of iron sheets and timber. His aunt does causal work and his uncle is a tailor. Since the nature of casual work is unpredictable they don’t have stable income. Their home has electricity but no water, which they have to buy. They prepare their meals using either charcoal or a gas cooker depending on the availability. Macarius sleeps on a sofa. Macarius is a student at Ngando Preparatory School. It’s his dream to be a doctor so he would be able to treat the sick in his community and also importantly, be able to transform his life and that of his family. During the recent selection interview exam, Macarius scored 416 out of 500.
