Esau Ekuitoit

Age: 17 Years old
Location: Streets

Esau was found and taken to live with his Grandmother after his Mother had tragically abandoned him in a bin shortly after he was born. Sadly his Grandmother then also rejected him as not her biological grandson, leaving Esau to find other relatives to take care of him and eventually ending up living on the streets.
In 2016 he was taken to an orphanage but left of his own choice after finding the situation too difficult to adjust to. However, Esau has returned with the realisation that his current lifestyle is not sustainable and has asked for a second chance to enable him to make a change in his life.

Nathan is just 13 years old and had been living on the streets of Kumi for over a year. After his mother left him as a young baby, his father turned to alcohol and became abusive, eventually failing to pay education fees and forcing Nathan to stay out of school to keep cattle, often without feeding him. The situation pushed Nathan to run away and with nowhere else to go he found himself on the streets. He recently found an Auntie to live with in Kumi Town who runs a hotel, giving him small jobs to earn small money here and there. Nathan would like to return to school to complete his education and create a brighter future for himself.
