When Raphael was born his mother deserted his father because she wouldn’t withstand the poverty condition at the time.

He and the brothers couldn’t follow their mother and with their father who had to change from being a quarry worker to a water vendor. The father earns barely ksh.200/ per day ($NZ 3.00) and has to feed and take care of three children on his own.

Without help Raphael has no academic future.
