Every Child Counts.
'Oh well, I have paid for her service, already and can't afford to release her to attend any school, now. She got so many things to do for me' says her guardian! Woowow! I was shocked by her response. (Abeg na who send me o. Thank God she didn't pour hot water on my head. lol). This was one little girl that hawks from morning till evening. You needed to see the heavy 'goods' she carries to sell on the street! She was one very strong 9 year old girl. My interaction with her instigated the eventual visit to her abode. And, I had to drive down that evening. smh. Sadly, all efforts to convince her guardian of the importance of granting her wishes, failed. It's been some months, already. And, I don't see my little friend anymore... #FateOfCotonouChildren#Maid
