My father died suddenly from a heart attack in 2011. My mother was left to care for our family. I have five siblings. She was doing her best but since she had to drop out of primary school and was never able to complete her education, it is very difficult for her to find a consistent job. When I could go to school, I went with an empty stomach. Often times I was sent home because we could not pay my school fees. I was ready to drop out of school. When I was 12 years old I was given the opportunity to live at Kaptagat Children’s Home. I am now in trade school. I am taking a catering course.
