Tim was brought to Achungo by his sister, Diana, a teacher at Achungo in 2016. He lives about 11 km away with 1 brother and 3 sisters and his parents (“who always allow me to do my homework”).
Tim’s a joker and says that he always makes people laugh, even when he is in front of class leading a review session. He told us, “ The best thing about Achungo is that the teaching system is so nice…pupils are taught well and when it reaches KCPE, they always pass.” (the KCPE is Kenya’s national 8th grade exit exam that has a 50% passing rate nationwide).
His favorite subjects are Math, Social Studies and English. Tim says that when he grows up, “I would like to be a lawyer who will judge people in the future. I would help the orphans and the disabled and also my parents.”
