Name: Destiny
Age: 13 or 14

Destiny is an outgoing young man from the village of Besali. He is one of five children. All the children in his family that are of school age are attending the local primary school which CIC/ICA helped build in 2010. He is currently in form 4 at the secondary school.

Destiny explained to us that before the CIC/ICA primary school was built, his studies were carried out in the forest under the trees. They had no text books so they would listen to the teacher and then write notes.

If he was not in school, Destiny told us that he would be farming with his mother and siblings. He would like to continue his studies and become a teacher.
