My mom was never married. She passed away from AIDS in 2001 when I was five years old. I have two older sisters. I do not know my father. After my mom died I went to live with my grandparents but soon after I moved in my grandfather passed away. I felt so bad. My grandmother tried to sustain our family by growing vegetables but it was too difficult for her. When I was 7 years old I was brought to Mahiga Children’s Home. Now, I am in university, studying law. I never thought I’d have an opportunity like this. I am so thankful to be living here where I am safe, loved and receiving an education.
