Edgar Matthews Orony Otieno

When Edgar’s father died when he was just a young boy, his mother was left to provide for the family. Unable to find a job, however, they were forced to move in with their widowed grandmother, who was also jobless. Wanting so badly for Edgar to make a life for himself, his mother sought Horizon’s help. Now living at the Maono Light Micro Community, Edgar is working hard toward reclaiming his identity and hopes to become a pilot one day.
