Derick completed form four of secondary school in 2016. He is 18 years old and has been selected to join a certificate course in Accountancy at the College of Business Education (CBE) in Mwanza.
Derick is the first-born of two children. His father Charles was in a car accident in October 2014 which left him a quadriplegic. He has been lying flat on his back since then. Derick’s mother is his father’s caretaker and nurse 24 hours a day. She cannot leave her husband’s side to go out and earn a living. Their livelihood and the medical care depend on hand outs.
We would like to help Derick earn a certificate in accounting so that he can help support himself and his family.
