My dad was the breadwinner of our family. I have two older sisters and an older brother. My dad was shot and killed suddenly by a group of thieves. It was so difficult for us as a family! My mom was unemployed at the time and could not find a job to support us. We started going days without eating and life became very dark. In 2011 when I was 8 years old my sister, Mercy, and I came to live at Mahiga Children’s Home. It was the only way we were going to survive and stay in school. I love it here! School is not easy for me but I try my best. I am now in Class 7 (7th grade). I enjoy playing ball games.
