I am a builder aide . I fetch water on construction sites and sometimes they let me do bricklaying. I have been doing this job for 7 months now. I am not from Kigali I live with my relatives. I am from Rubavu I try to go home at least once every two months. My parents could not afford to pay for my school fees anymore so I dropped out of school after my third year of secondary school. I am the one supporting them financially these days. My dream is to go back to school. I don’t want to get comfortable in this job and stay out of school for so long. I know that education can change my life.
