I do not know my father. My mom left me and my siblings under the care of my grandmother as she went to look for other jobs. She has never returned. My grandmother
separated from my grandfather many years ago because he is a drunkard and irresponsible. My grandmother works casually on someone’s farm so that she is able to feed us. However, I am not able to go to school because there is no money to pay for the small school fees. I’m thankful for an opportunity to live at Kaptagat Children’s Home with my brother, Emmanuel Kimutai. I am in 2nd grade.
