Vincent joined the Noah’s Ark day car centre when he was 9 years old, and was introduced to Noah’s Ark through another previous guardian.
Due to a very difficult childhood Vincent could not speak Kiswahili, English or interact with anybody except his mother, who is also partially deaf. Vincent’s father passed away when he was only two years old. Due to his mother’s physical challenges, Vincent and his mother were disowned and chased away from the family home by his father’s family. They then went to live with his maternal grandmother who is an amputee due to long-term diabetes. Although Vincent’s mother suffers from poor health she is the breadwinner through irregular casual jobs.
