Letipila Maximillian




Maximillian achieved marks of 280 on his KCPE results. He comes from a very traditional nomadic family. He has one sister and 3 brothers older than him. Maximillian lives with her elderly mother in an incredibly isolated area of the bush in Kenya called ndonyo wasin. Maximillian was born in 1997. He joined ndonyo wasin Primary School when he was 9 years old. He is very bright and hard working and throughout his time in primary school he was consistently one of the best performing students. He was the best reader, read a book by the title “Facing the lion” which talks of nomadic life similar to the one he is used to. Unfortunately, Maximillian’s family has no animals to live on. They rely on government’s aid for their food as well get help from their good neighbors for their main meal-mixer of blood and milk. Based on his good exam results he got a place at St. pius Seminary in Meru.Maximillian is painfully aware of how lucky he is and knows that education is the only way his family will be able to improve their livelihoods
