Street Money

street child wants to go to school

“I am once again out in the street, not playing but approaching each people to ask for a little amount for my allowance. I don’t mind the danger in the streets and I always pack all my guts just to have money for school. I really wanted to study and learn lessons in school. But my mother, who sells cigarettes and candies, uptown, couldn’t afford to send me to school. With my 2 other siblings also working their ways to complete their schoolworks. And I no longer have a father. I even skip classes just to get money for my allowance and get through all the school assignments. It is always my dream to finish college and be a professional someday. So I can help my family financially. I am still in 3rd grade and I still got a long way to that dream.”
