Dick came to Achungo in 2016, joining the 6th grade after a friend told his brother about it. Dick lives with his older brother who is 3 years older and his grandma and grandpa about 20 km from Achungo. At his old school he had to get up at 5 am to walk 2 km to school. When he first came to Achungo it was hard for him to catch up but now he does well on exams.
He says,”The best thing in Achungo is the teaching and learning. When you are at Achungo you feel at home and everyone is friendly and nice. I like the way we are taught until you have understood.” And he likes the dorm – “we sleep in good places.”
His favorite subject is Science. He told us, “When I finish my learning until the university I would like to be an aerospace engineer so as to try and help invent new types of technology.” Outside of his studies he likes to play football (soccer) and read lots of storybooks for fun – the library is his favorite place on campus.
