Good for you that you turned out well, however no child should EVER go through this. This is child endangerment, recklessness, wickedness and all the other adjectives that describes this. A terrible country and foolish unfortunate parenting leads to this. An unfair world

Life is good to you. Unfortunately most of these boys end up as drug addicts and street hurchins. No child should have to go through this.

I'm happy for you…
Most times when I meet especially the ones hawking on the streets and markets, I tell them my own story.
