Michael is the eldest child with a little sister. His mother left education early due to her pregnancy, and now works in Nairobi as a housemaid. Michael has no relationship with his father since he walked out on their family. Michael now lives in Buchirinya village with his maternal grandmother who is seriously ill and does some casual work to earn money.
There are five children living in the house in total, including Michael’s brother. Michael shares a bed with his grandmother. They do not have their own latrine so use a neighbour’s and they have to shower behind the house. The family draws their water from a neighbour’s well which they use for cooking and cleaning.
The family owns a farm where they had planted maize which they recently harvested. They also have a kitchen garden and they have just planted kale.
Michael attends Milimani Primary school in Musanda and is very active. He loves riding old tyres and playing football. At home he helps his grandmother by going to fetch water. He sometimes has a balanced diet but only when his grandmother can afford it.
