I am Tamy. I remember how hard my life was before coming to AOGE. My father was addicted to alcohol and my mother had to work to provide for our family. He used to fight with her all the time. Because of that, my three sisters, my brother and I were placed in organizations. My two elder sisters were living with AOGE, but I was living with my brother and other sister in other organization. I remember that it was not a good environment. The caretaker used to beat us, sometimes without reason. I was seven years old in 2005 when my sisters arranged for all of us be together in AOGE. They received us with their arms wide open!
I’m very grateful to AOGE because what my sisters and I are now, is a reflection of what they did for us. Through AOGE I could know what love and care mean. I got the chance of having a good education.
After concluding my secondary level, I thought it was the time to live with my parents again. They were not fighting as before and because I wanted to help care for them as they are getting old. The AOGE had already provided a shelter for my parents and now I can live with them. They also helped me obtain my first job at their office. With my earnings I can help my family. I am studying Management in University because of the AOGE scholarship program.
The AOGE made all the difference in my life and of family!
