There are 8 children in my family. I am the 4th born. Last year, I was given the opportunity to attend the Chariots for Hope Academy at Maai Mahiu Children’s Home. When the social worker visited our home, she realized my desperate situation and how dangerous my commute to school was for me. I do not know my father. My mother disappeared to an unknown place years ago. We were left with my elderly grandmother who is fighting high blood pressure. I’m thankful that my sister, Alice, and I are able to live at the children’s home where all of our needs are met. I am in Grade 4.
