Hope Transforms: A Success Story
*Moses is an alumnus of the Kiamaiko center. He has one other sibling and together they live with their father near the Kiamaiko community. Their mother left the country and now works in Qatar.
Moses sat for his primary school exit national exam in 2019 as a grade eight student. From 2017, we noticed a change in behavior with the young boy. He became very stubborn, chronically absent from school, and not focused on his education. His social workers together with the class teachers tried as much as they could to keep the boy in school and through mentorship and regular counseling, Moses was able to complete his primary education. He joined high school in 2020.
As with all our former students, we continued to carry out follow-ups on Moses, and this year, we realized that Moses was back to his old ways. He developed very deviant behavior such as sneaking out of school, having little respect for his teachers, and chronic absenteeism from class lessons. Our social worker, in charge of high school, carried out an investigation after realizing the change in character and established that the boy was using marijuana and taking alcohol.
The situation was getting out of hand because Moses would come to class high and was not able to concentrate. The principal could not tolerate the behavior anymore and was forced to expel the child from school.
Moses’ father came to the Kiamaiko center to seek assistance on how to handle the situation. After brainstorming with the social workers, the option was presented of taking the boy to a rehabilitation center. We thank God because Moses willingly agreed to go into rehab and he has been there since the beginning of the year and is set to come out in mid-December.
The social worker has been doing follow-ups on his progress and we can report that Moses has decided to reform. When you have a conversation with him via phone, the boy says he wants to go back to school and complete his education. He is also remorseful for what he has done and we know that by God’s grace, Moses will come out into society as a changed young man.
Please keep him in your prayers as he continues to take this journey of reformation and transformation.
