Ivan’s mother abandoned him when he was 1 year old and his father died in 2008. He was left under the care of his grandmother in the village until when she became too old and weak and could no longer take care of Ivan in 2017.
Ivan then started staying with his aunt in Katanga slum in 2017 with 2 of his aunt’s children . To earn a living, his aunt has a small drinking joint in Katanga slum and earns a very small income. From his aunt’s small income, she struggles to take Ivan to a poor government school a few kilometers away from the slum. Ivan misses school most times because his aunt’s small income can not sustain him in school.
Ivan is searching for a sponsor to support him in his education so that he can attain a bright future.
