I thought my uncles would help me with my school fees because they knew I was struggling, but I was very wrong. The only thing they did was to come home and drink. I struggled to earn a living, paying for my schooling and food myself. If I did not cook my uncles a meal, made with the food that I bought with the money I worked for, then they would beat me. I fear my uncles will sexually abuse me.”
