The social worker of the home was moved to tears on noticing me daily loitering eimlessly on the road in torn clothes.I was turning into a street boy due to poverty.After i was brought into the home,i was amazed at the amount of love and care i received.Now i am in school in class five learning.We are always counselled and encouraged daily by Gods people and other experts.My life has changed greatly.I am also very bright and always position 6,5 or 4 in class,i believe i will fulfill my desire to become an engineer.
