Hope Transforms: A Success Story
Josephine* is a student in Grade 7. She joined our school in 2020. Josephine grew up in Korogocho with her mother and two siblings. Growing up in Korogocho was hard, but her mother was determined to give her children access to quality education and a relationship with God. This is what led them to Missions of Hope International.
Josephine and her siblings were brought up by a single mother. Their mother was a tailor and was able to put food on the table and pay her children’s school fees.
Throughout Josephine’s education, she has shown strong leadership qualities. So when her mother fell ill and became bedridden Josephine rose to the occasion. Her mother had to quit her job and they began to really struggle financially. It was hard for Josephine and her siblings to watch a woman who had been their pillar and provider suddenly become weak and vulnerable.
As time progressed, their mother’s condition worsened and she had to be hospitalized. Josephine was left to step in and take care of her siblings. This began to take a toll on her education, Josephine would miss school while caring for the home, or her mind would wander, and could not concentrate when in class. Eventually, the stress of her mother’s illness caused her to fall ill herself.
The school social worker would visit Josephine and her siblings often to encourage them. Her class teacher and other teachers also visited her which helped her recover a lot quicker. When Josephine sought medical attention she was put on medication and soon recovered.
After a term, Josephine fully recovered. Her struggles gave her new hope in God as she began to see life as a gift from God. During visits by MOHI staff, their prayers encouraged Josephine and when she got better she knew it was because God heard her prayers. Her good health also reignited her passion for being a chef.
Josephine’s mother was later discharged and is doing better, though she still cannot go to work or walk long distances. The Lord is still with her and slowly nursing her back to health.
Josephine’s grandmother came to take care of Josephine and her siblings. This has allowed Josephine to come to attend school regularly. We continue praying for Josephine’s mother to recover fully. The family is grateful to MOHI for showing them love, care, and support as they go through a rather difficult time. During this time of financial hardship being able to go to school and eat two meals a day has been instrumental.
