My name is Kato. I am 12 years old. I live in Buribila Village, mpig district. My mother died when I was 6 years old and my father remarried after one year. Me and my two sisters Natato Jane and Babiryo Mary are mistreated by our stepmother. She denies us food, especially lunch and we don’t take supper because we don’t grow enough food because we are young.Everyday, before we go to school, we have to dig and take the goats to the fields. I want to become a doctor when I grow up and take care of the sick people so they don’t die and leave their children.
