Leseding gives hope

Farm

Starfish and Leseding Care Givers making a difference!

I am 15 years old residing on farms, with both parents and my elder brother.

My parents are farm workers and they never dream of leaving the farms, I once asked them what will happen to me when I finish school, my dad keep saying that I will also be a farm worker, It breaks my heart to know that my life will end in the farms.

Both parents are drunkards; there is a never passing day without them drinking. It annoys me so much to have such family and as for my brother, he is a nobody he smokes nyaope like no body’s business.

I drop out from school for about a year, but because of the love of the outsiders I realize that there is more to life than being a child from the farms. Leseding Care Givers found me in the mist of misery I had given up altogether, my parents do not care about me or the things I want in life, or I want to become.

Ever since I have become part of Leseding Care Givers, I have seen life differently, coming from the farm does not mean that you should end up being a farm worker. That’s what I learn from one of the carer from Leseding. I am very proud to say that I am a beneficiary in LESEDING care givers, and I am thankful for all that I received from them, food parcels, school materials, and other material support. “Thank you so much Leseding and Starfish for your support, I have now gained self-confidence and believe that my life won’t end at the farm”
