I joined the girl's home in May 2021. I came along with my mother. Earlier that year, my father died of kidney disease as he was addicted to alcohol and tobacco. I was living with her mother and two younger brothers in a red-light area before joining the girl's home. My mother has exited the sex trade and she is now working as a house maid. She was unable to care for my brothers and I with her present earnings, so she admitted me to the girl's home so I could have a chance at a brighter future. I am happy and like living in the home and like that I get to go to school too.
