Rehabilitation Of Street Children

By a male, under 16 years old, in Kakamega Central, Kenya
Map of REHABILITATION OF STREET CHILDREN My name is Daniel Aseka. I am a total orphan as both my parents died while I was still very young. My experience for the last 7 years has been one full of despair and confussion and it has not been for fun for me to opt for the street life. I came to the street life of Kakamega town when I was 89 years old(I am now 12). I have relied on borrowing and collecting garbage to survive. I had only tested class 1, was bright but could not go on. Recently a social worker from WEAEP came to my aid. She counselled with me and took me to a centre where arrangements would be made for a temporary accommodation before being re-integrated and be taken to school or be provided with skills course. I would find it still challenging because now that my desire has shot up for learning getting a sponsor to help me get a place of stay and to go to school would be very good for me. Read more.
