His father is an expert honey gatherer and he has made his living out of collecting honey and firewood from the forest. More recently he has been employed by the Ndonyo Wasin Primary school as a gardener and maintenance person. He also has a few goats which give them milk. his wife looks after.

Francis is a very responsible boy who got 226 on his KCPE exams. He has been accepted by Sagana Technical Institute that is one of the best technical schools in the country and he will study Mechanic there. His father’s salary at the school is less than $50 per month and it is not enough to send Benedict on to technical education.
