Hope Transforms: A Success Story
Tammy* comes from a broken home. But it has not always been that way. Before her parents separated they lived in the Korogocho area where she and her younger brother both attended our Korogocho B Center. In 2020, due to the pandemic, many people lost their jobs; Tammy’s parents included. Both of her parents were casual workers, they found it hard to make ends meet this caused a lot of strife in their marriage and Tammy’s parents would fight frequently.
Eventually the fighting became very frequent and Tammy’s parents decided to separate. Tammy and her brother went to live with their mother. This became very hard for the single mother to provide for her family so she was forced to leave Nairobi and back to the country with her two children.
Tammy’s absence was noticed and her social worker went to follow up with her family to see what was going on. Tammy and her family had already moved away but they kept in contact with our social worker. Over the next few months, Tammy’s mother was encouraged and evangelized to by the social worker, they would talk about her trying her best so she could bring her family back to Korogocho so that they can receive an education at MOHI.
Tammy’s mother was very determined to give her children the best education and ensure that they are raised with good Christian values. Eventually after a year of hard work Tammy and her family managed to come back to Korogocho where they were welcomed back into the MOHI program. During this time of hardship Tammy and her brother were unable to attend school as their mother couldn’t afford to take them. When they came back they were behind on their education and needed all the help they could get to catch up. Their teachers wasted no time giving them the extra attention they needed.
Now Tammy and her brother are all caught up and are doing well in school. Their mother has been able to get casual labor to sustain her family. They thank God for MOHI and for all the emotional, spiritual and caring support they received during this difficult time.
- We thank God that all our last year’s grade 8 and 6 students successfully joined high school and junior high school. We bless God that they are all receiving an education and on their way to making a change in their communities.
- We are grateful to God for enabling us to start a junior secondary school as required by the government. We are grateful that our grade 7 students have settled into school.
- Pray for our children and our staff to be in good health as they break for the short holidays and as the next school term begins.
- We continue to pray for the protection of our staff and students during this political unrest that Kenya is facing.
- Pray for the community that God will provide for their needs during these tough economic times.
