Philo Boys: Makintoch
Makintoch is 23 years old. An orphan himself, he can always be found around our childcare office. He works tirelessly to organize activities for the kids, such as the soccer program we host in the summer months. During the school year, he enjoys helping the children with their homework. Makintoch seems to know every single kid at Espwa, and he is very accountable when given any task regarding the children.
Makintoch often serves as a translator for our visiting doctors and nurses, and has been able to observe their work with the kids in our clinic. This has helped him envision his future of continuing to work with children by becoming a pediatrician. "My passion is helping take care of people. It's what I love to do," he says. His favorite subjects in school are Biology and English, and he is inspired by President Barack Obama and Martin Luther King Jr.
