Both of my parents are alive.  I come from a very large family and my older siblings have not been able to break out of poverty.  They have dropped out of school,
become single parents or are unemployed.  My parents do not own any land and they work temporary jobs on someone else’s land in order to try to feed us.  I did not have any hope of my life being any different until I was given the opportunity to live at Kaptagat Children’s Home.  I not only have hope for myself but for my family as well.  If I can finish school then maybe I will be able  to help my family too.  I am in 7th grade (Class 7).
