My Suffering After The Denial

I was born in an economical challenged family of 10. My family denned me wheen I was in class six simply because of my faith. Going to church is what brought conflict in my family especially when my fellow Christians visited me. My dad could not do anything that my brothers nad sisters wanted but when it came to my situation, he didn't assist me in anyway. The story is long.... TUMAINI HOPE FOR CHILDREN PROGRAM was aware of my suffering there fore tok me away from my family. The program later took me to school to acquire education. After terminating my primary level, I was taken tp high shool and right now I am a form three student from Nema Senior School. The program has not fully fulfilled my desire./needs because there are so many things that I lack in life like a grown up boy. But all in all, the program has helped me in many ways i must admit. I am not the only person that the program "upcoming Children's Home". We are 30 in number but the rpogram is not in position to support all of us but it is doing it's best.
