Abu lost his mother when he was very little and stayed with his father in the provinces of Sierra Leone. Abu lost his father in 2013, and as a result moved in with his uncle. His uncle did not care for the needs of Abu, nor was he willing to pay his tuition for school.
Abu lived on the street carrying loads and finding any kind of work he could in order to make enough money to survive. He wishes to continue in school.
Abu is in Senior Secondary IV and attends Rural Academy.
