My uncle dropped out of school two years before he was due to graduate. Earlier, while in primary school, shortly after he had been diagnosed with a learning disability, his mother—my grandmother—passed away from cancer. At a young age, he was faced with challenges both and home and at school which deterred his progress through the education system.
