My name is Elija. I grew up in an orphanage. When I was four years old, my mother left me in an orphanage. I didn’t continue my studies. I left that orphanage when I was 15 years old. I realized that leaving home was my biggest mistake. My husband helps me a lot but it is not enough for a family. I have only one son, and I want to give him a proper education that will help him to have a bright future. I am happy with Basha daycare. I can keep my son there before I start my work. I will work hard for him. I think Basha is the right place for women who want to work near their children.
