World Day against Child Labour: Orphan Sells Polythene Bags to Realize ‘Lawyer Dream’

The dream of a young girl to become a Lawyer or Nurse has been dashed following the death of her parents.

Akua Adepa 17, lost her parents two months after completing Junior High School.

To realize her best dream, she has been trading in polythene bags at the Kumasi Central Business District to earn enough income to provide for her basic needs.

Speaking in an interview with Abusua FM’s reporter Osei Kwadwo as today June 12, 2018 marks ‘’World Day against Child Labour’’ said her task was to get daily bread through the selling of polythene bags.

However, Adepah fears her dream to become Lawyer or Nurse in future may go to the tatters due to lack of support.

She shelters from her sister’s abode but nothing comes out of it since her sister is jobless and can’t provide her needs.

“Though I want to become Nurse or Lawyer in future, I don’t have support to help me accomplish my dream’’ she lamented.

‘’ Now I want to be a hair dresser that’s why I am selling polythene bags to get money. Every day I save 2cedis or 3cedis but sometimes I use some of my savings to buy cloths” added the 17 year old girl.

Now Adepa has two options either to go to school or learn hair dressing.

Nonetheless, she is appealing to Stakeholders, NGOs to come to her aid to make her dream come through.
