Towards me was a chokora who was so unclean with dirty cloths not forgetting taking bang I felt afraid and so I started to run. He was so furious and even started complaining I had high heels by then so running was so difficult for me. He had a friend who was subure and he started chasing after me.

Responsible Orphans

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of RESPONSIBLE ORPHANS Life in Kibera is cheap but expensive to others.I met this family that has for so long lived without parents.This was a family of five,two boys and three girls/ladies.The eldest was a boy who was a boy who was at teenage and could not even afford to go for any easy job as he was underage.They lived by the small amount that they earned after school by fetching water,washing peoples clothes and the small amount from these tiny jobs. What shocked many was how this children co-operated to ensure they had a bread for the day.Their duties were assigned to each other everyday.They never went a day without something to smile about.Despite their financial status,they lived a life optimism and hope,hope that one day they will make it in life and be able to stand for themselves.Their respect was admired by every neighbour around them.They not only respected people but of all they respected God of all things.This was seen as they never missed going to church every sunday.It never took long after high school that their elder brother who was sponsored by st.Aloysius a school that is run by CL.C and the got a well paying job.
