Looking For Future

My dad passed away in 2008. Just after I had completed KCPE exams. My mother was a farmer. She really struggled for me to join form one. I managed to join secondary school then in form four my mother also passed away. I am the only bread winner now, father as well as mother. It had been hard very had to sustain my siblings. We stay at Ngando village. Well wishers in the community have been helping us. I complited my certificate in marketing but the problem is, I have to take care of my sister in Std 6 and a brother in baby class. I have hope despite difficult I will educate my sibling. I know my brother and my sister will make it.
