Hope Transforms: A Success Story

*Charles is a kindergarten student at the Korogocho Grogan center. He joined the school mid-last year and we soon noticed that something was wrong with the child.

He had several disciplinary issues from stealing to being rude to teachers and students to the extent that he would hit the teacher from the back while teaching in class. He would bully his fellow pupils and he was greatly feared. When we called his parent to school, we realized that Charles is being raised by a single father who is himself struggling with drug addictions. Without proper parental care, Charles was often left to his own devices and he had developed a very bad character.

We immediately launched intervention measures to help this boy. The teachers and social workers scheduled time to offer ongoing counseling and guidance to Charles. We soon realized that he is just a child in need of care and emotional support and who sometimes did not have food. The father was also involved all through the process and we encouraged him to take on more of a parental role with his son. 

In time, Charles started to open up and he admitted that he had joined a band of boys in the neighborhood who were encouraging him to steal. These boys were also teaching him how to be violent and how to use rude language. He, however, said that he wanted to change because he had learned that stealing is not good. This was the turning point and since then, Charles has been an entirely different person both in school and at home. He has become friendly to teachers and pupils alike and his academic performance has really improved. He shows respect to all his teachers and comes to school every single day without fail. Charles’ father now regularly comes to school to check on his son’s progress and he also makes sure that the boy has something to eat at home.

We thank God for the transformation witnessed and we will not stop walking closely with this family. It is our prayer that Charles’ dad would be freed from the hold of addiction so that he can better take care of his child. We know with God all things are possible.
