My name is Orpha Kemunto, aged 15. I come from the village of Kibarage in Kangemi where I live with my single mom. My family consists of 7 people but we also accommodate my aunt and her daughter.
Life has not been good for me as I turned to be a twilight sister (commercial sex worker) to make ends meet. This has not deterred me from making my dream come true. Currently am undergoing some training under the Digital Storytelling project sponsored by Undugu Society of Kenya. This is a platform that has enabled me to have a feel of what I can do and to speak out for what is on my mind through a story. The project has also given me the hope getting a better job through the certificate that ill acquire a certificate and I hope that I would be able to quit the streets and live a decent life.
it has become the only key to life in our region ,and now it has even led to some girls between the ages of 15 to 20 years to drop out of school . This problem has reached to an extent that even their parents are worst than their children’s. e.g. there is a friend of mine whose parent is an expert of the work, that by now she says that she is throaty feet on the job .she mostly says that if goes on his working place she earns a lot more than any work in addition to she tells that his proud of his working hands that god blessed her with. She spends her night by doing the work at times as from 9 o’clock evening up to 6 am. Some times when she comes home s he says that she mightily be rapped off or high jacked by thugs this seemly occurs when she arrives home ealy at 12.00 p.m.
