Kwame

„My name is Kwame and I was living on the streets for eight years. There I gambled for money and did many other things. It wasn’t easy to live on the streets. Sometimes I didn’t have any money to buy food or even water. As I had no place to sleep, I often slept next to streets. When it was raining, I was always very sad. At times I had to beg for money or sell things at the market so I could buy something to eat. Life on the streets really wasn’t easy.”

(Kwame, 15 years old, former street child, now living in a CFC home)
