It was a real life Situation When our father abadoned us for many years.He did not provide us with basic needs.My mother had to struggle harder and harder through out the day.This is for providin basic needs like food,shelter and also clothes.she used to make ropes.When I grew as a young boy I was taken to a nursery school.But I didn't perserve with my primary course.I escaped away from school and accompanied a street group of children.I was unable to coup with them but I perseverd. They showed how to handle the people so that they give me anything for consuption. I used to sleep under the trench. When I was nearer the bus station I was called by lady.she greeted me nicely, I was so glad and happy.The first question I was asked,''are you able to learn,'' YES am able but for the sake of trying she directed towards the court.You will find the car park and you able to see garden hotel proceed a long the fence if you are able to see a black gate,that's the school of Jitegemee
