Hope Transforms: A Success Story
Eight-year-old Kara is a kindergarten student at Missions of Hope International (MOHI) Kargi center. She comes from a family of six and her father is polygamous.
While still a young child, Kara was given to her aged aunt to live with and help with the household chores. No one bothered to take her to school even after her agemates joined the school. Our social workers visited Kara’s home regularly to meet with her father and convince him to let her go to school. The man would not hear of it and insisted that Kara was already booked for marriage and was being prepared to become a wife. The father was looking to receive camels for her betrothal and was not interested in losing out on this payment.
Being a pastoralist family, Kara’s father would often spend days out in the grazing fields. One time, he took off for the pastures and her mother brought her to school and enrolled her as a student. When the man came back, he was very angry but because the girl was under the custody of her elderly aunt, he could not do anything about it. He, however, refused to pay the school commitment fee.
After schools closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Kara was staying with her parents and would take the animals out to graze. During this period, her parents had a falling out that caused her mother to run away with Kara’s four siblings. She was out in the grazing field when this happened and she had no option but to remain with her father. After a while, he married another woman and they moved away from Kargi.
When schools reopened, Kara was nowhere to be found. We did a follow-up and established contact with relatives who later connected us to the father. He was totally opposed to bringing the girl back to school and it seemed like the chances of linking her to her future suitor were high once again. However, with persistent follow-up, he opted to bring her back but still does not offer any type of support. Kara now lives with her elderly aunt who is doing her best to support her.
Kara is now in school full time and is a dedicated student who takes her learning very seriously. She seems happy staying with her aunt and we pray that God will continue to watch over and provide for the two.
Please join us as we pray for this young girl and her family that they will experience complete transformation in their lives.
- We have seen a real improvement in our grade seven learners’ academic performance. These learners have been very committed and active in their academics and extracurricular activities.
- We are proud of our pre-school learners who have shown great improvement in terms of communication. Now that they are able to speak more than just their mother tongue, these learners have been very active in all school activities.
- Kindly pray for all Kargi families, especially during this dry season. Most of the families have moved to far-off areas in search of pasture for their animals. This has affected their children’s education since they are not able to come to class.
- Pray for all our learners who are working towards having a successful future despite coming from a hardship area.
