Macknon came to the Encouragement Children's Home in 2008.
He lived with the mother and siblings at the grandmother’s home. The mother who is a house wife and there being no land for her to farm, it was hard to raise income to support them all. Feeding was a problem and many times they would sleep on an empty stomach. He was attending school but most of the time he would stay at home due to lack of school fees.
