His mother suffered a stroke, and has paralysis of her left arm and partial paralysis of her left leg. She cannot afford for Mathayo to continue his education at Loksale Seconday School, (he completed Form One in December 2012), so the project is now sponsoring him to go to Moita School for his final three years.
Mathayo started his Form Two at Moita Boys Secondary Boarding School in January 2013. He was sponsored by Middlesbrough Erimus Rotary Club. Unfortunately Mathayo did not pass his Form Two national examinations, so was not able to continue at school. His sponsorship was transferred to Lomnyaki Saitabau.
