I came to live at Mahiga Children’s Home when I was 14 years old.  I do not know my father.  My mom married someone after I was born. Then she died.  I was left to live with my step-father. He started abusing me.  It was so bad he was arrested and taken to court, but due to the corruption in our country his case was dismissed. Thankfully, the District Children’s Officer became aware of my situation through this and recommended that I be brought to Mahiga in order to keep me safe.  I do not have any other family members. I am now at Kenyatta
University studying education.
