“I’m 11. Since my father is ill and cannot get out of his bed, my brother and I have to take the responsibility to feed our family. It’s not easy to be a shepherd, but when you must find a way to make a living, you’ll have to do anything. I do get tired everyday out there, but I’m still happy that we can take care of ourselves and we don’t need anyone. Every day when I go home and see my mother and father in good health, I forget all of my pain and tiredness. The most important thing is that my siblings and I are all still in school, and I have hope that we can secure a good future for ourselves and finally get out of village life”.
