I have a new life
I'm a criminal and the police knows me. I used to rob banks, take drugs and rape girls. But now I have a new life. I know that my life is more important.
For years, NGO came to tell us about HIV: do this, don't do that. Then the Constellation came and they told me I had strengths. It was the first time someone told me I had strengths. So I started using them. I give counselling to my community and I take care of People Living with HIV.
