..... I continue to father them
“At this age, I have to toil and work to feed my grandchildren. Since they lost their parents, I continue to father them. They look after each other when I’m away. The unsafe environment for them is a major concern.”
About 80 percent of parents leave their children at home alone when they go out to work. Either they are unaware of childcare facilities such as crèches or accessibility in their community. The common childcare arrangement, especially amongst construction workers and street vendors is to take the children with them to their workplace.
