Umaru lived with both parents; his father was a driver while his mom was a trader. His father was sick for a few years which lead to his mom taking over the responsibilities of the house. She earns very little to keep everyone together in the house so
Umaru had the conviction to help his mother out with a little for food while his mom catered for his father’s medical bills. Umaru stopped schooling and went on to the street to do all kinds of odd jobs to help out in his own way.
Umaru is in Senior Secondary II and attends Rural Academy.
