Petro lives with his parents and six brothers and sisters. His parents are very poor and they were expecting Petro to be employed at his young age for their survival. Neighbours are supplying food for the family.
Petro started Moita Boys’ Secondary Boarding School in January 2011, and completed his secondary education in November 2014. He was sponsored throughout his time at Moita School by Maria Gardner, a member of staff at Acklam Grange School. In 2015 Petro will be applying for a place at Arusha Vocational Training Centre, and will also be sponsored through this course by Maria.
