Benson lives with his mother and three other children.  His story is not a happy one. His second name, "Obeta," means "temptation." Benson's mother was a victim of assault. She said the decision to not abort him was the hardest that she has ever made. He is a well-behaved and happy child now, and he is excited to have the opportunity to go to school. His mom is now a subsistence farmer, and Benson helps around the home by fetching water.  He enjoys playing soccer, and he wants to be a doctor for his career.
