Throughout the years, Kelvin has watched his aging father struggle to meet the cost of his primary school education. His father sells goats and milk from the cow the family owns in order to support his family, while his mother can often be found at church or other communal gatherings. She pays little attention to Kelvin. His older siblings are also absent, having left the home in search of greener pastures. The money Kelvin’s father makes is nothing compared to the fees associated with going to secondary school. With his father’s health and energy in decline and hardly enough money to make ends meet, Kelvin fears he will never get the chance to attend high school.
Academically, Kelvin has all it takes to join secondary school and be successful. At the end of term 1, he earned 349 out of 500 total points, putting his average at a solid B+. Considering the challenges he faces at home, this is an admirable feat. Kelvin was also appointed class prefect at school, demonstrating that he has already developed good leadership skills. Kelvin also says that this role has helped him develop his confidence through interacting with other students and teachers in school. Outside of class, he enjoys leading the choir at his church and helping his elderly neighbors with fetching firewood and water.
