DOB October 31, 1996
Came under Tumaini care September, 2009
Originally from Karatu District, Rwekiza’s brother Efram was first discovered living in the garbage. Mr. Oddo worked to convince Efram to come to a care center in Arusha. Rwekiza was discovered later. Rwekiza’s father died when he and his siblings were very young. A relative was supposed to come to help raise the children but never arrived and his mother attempted to provide care for her children by selling the local, legal, home brew, “plwa”. She was not successful and the boys found themselves on the streets of Arusha.
