Child's Success Story

Child's Success Story

11 years old:

My parents died because of HIV/AIDS. Three years ago, when I was 11 years old, my aunt took me to another country to find work to help my two sisters and my grandmother back home. She promised me that I would have a good life and go to school and work at the same time.

In this new country, my life changed. I was forced to traffic alcohol from place to place. Many times I was arrested by police, and they took the alcohol package. Each time I was released, I would go to the host home of the person I worked for. She would starve me the whole day as punishment because I was not able to dodge the police. All this time, my aunt was nowhere to be seen. I asked my host mama about going to school, but she said no. The third time I asked, she poured hot water on me and burnt my legs.

Last year when Covid 19 came, some people came to our house to teach the Great Child class. Our host mama was not around that day. This was the first time I was allowed to speak about myself without being judged as a foreigner. Every child in the class gave me feedback on how great I am. I felt I could face my fears. This session created a totally new me. It gave me the power to modify who I am, how I behave and act. My life was completely reworked and made new again.

Later, I decided to go to a nearby school that opened. I explained my situation and was admitted. They placed me in a children's home and traced my family, and sometimes they give me a chance to call. I am a new leader in this home and also in charge of mentoring seven children to become the best they can be. I formed champions of I'm A Great Child. These young people are agents of change, speak positively about themselves and others, and form great child classes and train. I believe that children need love and protection.
