Pius’s mother died of HIV/AIDS in 2014 and he was left under the care of his grandmother in the village. His father is alive but a drunkard and does not support the children in anyway. Pius has one sibling and during holidays he stays with his aunt in a muddy single room in Katanga slum because his aunt can not afford to take him to school in the city.
His aunt is a hairdresser from home because she can not afford to pay for rent and in a week she can get two or one customers and sometimes not any. Pius goes to poor school in the village but frequently misses school because of lack of school fees.
Pius is in search of a sponsor to support his education.
