Some of these children had lost their children in road accidents while some lost their parents because their parents had HIV/AIDS. By being orphans, some neighbours took advantage to starti introducing them to child labour. These girls were dropped out of school and taken to tea plantations where they acted as tea pickers. Inspite of this, these girls were paid very low wages or salaries. Everyday these girls started working very early in the morning. Some of them started being sick because of working in the plantations. This because while they were busy working in this tea plantation, somebody would come and start spraying medicine to the plants. As you know, they sometimes inhaled these chemicals and this made them sick. As time went by, some good samaritans realised this and this made they to suck these child
