Brenda

My dad died when I was 4 years old. My mom was a widow with five children. We did not have land and had been living as squatters on someone’s farm.  After my dad died, the owners chased us off this property.  We moved around the village begging for food and trying to survive. The area chief and church leaders stepped in to help and took me and my sister, Joyline, to Mogogosiek Baby Home.  My mom is still not able to provide for me and so I moved to Kaptagat Children’s Home so that I can continue with my education. I am in 2nd grade (Class 2).  I’m happy to be cared for and safe.
