Ratib Adiga completed his primary education at Oluba Primary School in 2004 and then attended Green Valley College Secondary School in Yumbe for his Ordinary Level studies. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond his control, Ratib had to leave school during secondary three. He began working as a gardener on various farms until February 2017, when he accepted the position of security officer with Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Bidibidi Refugee Settlement. Ratib was retained by Real Medicine Foundation when MSF-managed health facilities were transferred to RMF in July 2017.
Ratib enjoys listening to the radio and watching soccer, and he speaks Lugbara, English, and Kiswahili.
