Need Your Help To Ignite My Future

by Jackline
(Kampala, Uganda)

Am Jackie from Uganda who has been neglected by everyone around me because am HIV+. This has always made me sick at the thought of being homeless, sick and no permanent job to sustain my future.

My parents have disowned me because they think I misused my fees for men which is not true. I was raped when I was still 16yrs in senior two, but did not disclose it to my parents due to their harshness and no friendship at all since childhood because am a step child.

Am 23yrs now. I have always had no voice in my family and the unfortunate part of it is my sickness which I cant get off my body and be the same at least. My parents have vowed never to give me anything any more because am a moving corpse and therefore say, they have no time to waste on me while they have other children to look after.

Am their last born but now my dad opts to look after his grandchildren that have their well off parent than spending any coin on me. I would want to hurt him more once he sees me excelling to show him that it wasn't either my fault or the way he thought.

My hopes would only come true once I get someone to hold my hand to achieve my success. I don't care from which country provided I finish a degree in Business administration majoring in Finance.

Am left with one semester to finish my diploma in financial services in Makerere University Business School,Uganda. Which am getting from my own sweat,studying while working. Is there any person who can help me achieve my dreams? Can I get a scholarship to lift me to another level?

Great thanks to all dear readers.

Thsnk u so much dear for yo courage.the fact remains that its coz u may not be knowing my background and that why you said my parents love me.u dont know what i've passed thru,and i can never pretend that my parents love me.but i know that one day,they'll regret what they did coz i've a clean heart.its now four years without them,and they have never bothered to look for me!!!!,how can i prove that they love me.maybe,get me on
Maybe,u'll get the whole picture.thank u so much dear for yo advice but i reject the advice that my parents love me.
I love you too.

Know the stigma of HIV/AIDS is very much alive back home( Africa )despite itz prevalence.could be due to poverty,unemployment and the emotional strain on famillies.Ur parents love u.Don't hesitate to get in touch,yeah.
