My mom is not married. I do not know my father. I have one older sister who helps to take care of my mom. She has some strange disease which caused her leg to be amputated. Since she is immobile now she is unable to work. We were dependent upon my grandparents to provide for me but they did not have a source of income either. I did not know if I would be able to attend school. It is hard to believe that now I am in my last year of primary school in 8th grade (Class 8). This is only possible because I live at Mahiga Children’s Home. I hope to be able to support myself and my family one day.
