Abass stayed with his father after the separation of his parents, his father cannot adequately take care of him. His step-mother maltreated him by giving him less food to eat and plenty of work to do even when his younger sisters were present to assist.
Abass dropped out of school for failure to pay his tuition, so he resorted to caring loads, sweeping market stalls and washing dishes to survive on the street. He also raised funds to help himself continue school, which is his desire.
Abass is in Junior Secondary III and attends Holy Way School.
