I am the oldest child in a family with four children. My parents are divorced. My mom returned to her parent’s home with all of us children. She is the breadwinner for the entire family and yet she does not have a steady job. It is hard to find consistent work in the area where we live. My grandparents own a small piece of land but it is rocky and unproductive. It is common for us to go without eating all day. I am often sent home from school because I do not have school fees and we cannot afford for me to be there. I’m supposed to be in 3rd grade (Class 3). I am
happy to be living at Mahiga Children’s Home now.
