Child Labour

By a male, under 16 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of CHILD LABOUR In our village there are two children who are orphans. When their parents died their parents died their aunt took them and promised to educate them.Instead of standing by her words she started mistreating them, sending them to the market, making them iron upto late in the night and wash her clothes. Even when they were sick they never took care of them . One day a friend who worked with their father saw them selling water and bread to passers by.He took them to his home and told him to seek his help when in need when he handled the case. When the aunt realised it she sweet talked them so that they may not reveal the truth to the court. By good lack the man had accompanied the children with the police. This made the lady to be arrested and jailed as the man took care of the children and educated them.Today they are free in the man's home unlike at their aunts place. Read more.

Old Woman

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of OLD WOMAN She has got to seventy years and above but the hopes of getting to her own home are so minimal.Anyone who looks at her wonders what makes her be in the urban area at that late age but they will never understand as she says to those who gossip about her. I was wondering what kind of work would she be doing if it was not for Ushirika a woman group that gave her somewhere to sell water and earn something for the day.She is always hopeful that one day somebody will help her out and get her a place to buy land and build a house for her. She has big children grandchildren and also great grandchildren and she always feel ashamed to be in the urban area but there is nothing she can do. Read more.
