Student Profile - Onesmus

Onesmus was brought into the care of the Mufu Home in 2012. Onesmus had been living with several family members including his mother and grandmother. Many members of his family struggled with mental illness, leaving his 90-year-old grandmother as the primary breadwinner. Even with the support of others in the community, the family lived in extreme poverty. Since arriving at Mufu, Onesmus has realized the value of a good education and has worked very hard in school. The EBF had not yet been established, but he was able to begin secondary school in 2019 thanks to fundraising efforts within his community. Since then, the EBF has provided funds to ensure consistent support and cover the remaining shortfalls, and he is now working hard to achieve his goals in Year 3.
