Riski is a very happy kid who just turned 17 years old. His story is incredible. He is one member of a set of quadruplets. Yes, four babies at once. Sadly, one of them died. He is from a village close to Cirebon (about a four hour drive from our city.) We had the chance to go to his home and meet his mom. Riski’s mom is so humble and kind. His parents divorced when Riski was in 3rd grade, and both parents have since remarried.
At the moment Riski‘s mom does not work, but his step-dad is a carpenter who makes around $90-$120 USD a month, which supports the whole family.
Riski has been with us now almost 1 month, and he has adapted very well. He is one of the best cooks at the Transition Home, and everyone is always laughing or smiling when Riski is around. We are very blessed to have him here and to have the opportunity to make an impact on his life.
Riski has one more year in SMK (technical high school) where he is learning mechanics, like how to fix motorcycles. Besides that, he is following our program from morning until night learning English everyday, playing soccer, etc.
Riski’s dream is to make his family proud, and he wants to be a professional soccer player. If he does not become a soccer player, Riski wants to become an officer in the army or work in a school or hospital.
