I LOVE PLAYING,MAKES ME HEALTHIER
I LOVE PLAYING,MAKES ME HEALTHIER

My name is Lilian,every day after school,i have to help my mother sell fish by the road side.we sell fish till 9pm at night to help bring food to the table.im 13 years old and almost sitting for my final exams next year.i know at this time i should be reading and it is also risky for us to be outside at that time.But life in the slums is hard and we have to support each other.We  are nine in our family and our dad ran away from home.Safe Spaces supports me with transport to go to school and also get school supplies.This has made my school life abit easier as i am not sent home every now and then.my grades have improved and now im seeing myself becoming a doctor i have always dreamt of.

Two years ago it was so hard for me to go to school on time and i never attended classes during my monthly periods as did not have sanitary towels,now i receive them every month from Safe Spaces and im able to remain in school.

Safe spaces would not be able to support me without your help.I pray for you every day and you are always in my heart.

Thank you so much and please dont leave us alone,we need each other.
