Age: 14

Makindye, Uganda

I am 14 years old.  My mother left home when I was 9 years and later she died when I was 13 years old.  I lived with my father and brother in the slums of Kampala city. My father could not look after me and my brother was not going to school.  Sometimes there was no food. So I used to go to the city to look for food and money.

My friend Sophia who lived in the Youth Corps home told me about the home. Now I go to school; I like the friends I stay with in the home and the mentors. I thank God that he brought me to the Youth Corps family. In the future I want to work in a beauty salon.
