Hope Transforms: A Success Story
*Pamela is an alumnus of the Korogocho Grogan center having sat for her grade eight exam last year. She lives with her parents in the Grogan community and is the third born in a family of four children.
Pamela joined our school as a kindergartener and she was a well-behaved student. Unfortunately, when she got to grade seven, her behavior both at home and in school took a complete turn for the worse. She became disobedient to her teachers and parents alike, she would sleep away from home and she was just generally unruly. The social worker referred her for counseling, but it did not bear any fruits. When Pamela got to grade eight, she started missing school for days on end and she eventually decided to drop out of school. She then went missing and nobody knew where she was.
The social worker and the parents searched for Pamela relentlessly until they eventually traced her. She was living in a man’s house where she claimed to be happily married. The parents decided to take their daughter to their rural home, miles away from Nairobi, in order to separate her from the man. As a school, we supported the decision since a student cannot legally be married and Pamela stayed away for three months and only came back to do her national exams. She was promptly sent back to the rural village to await her results.
Despite the challenges we had encountered, Pamela got grades that enabled her to transition to high school. When she came back to Nairobi, we held several sessions with her and counseled her. We used her grades to show Pamela what she is capable of achieving if she is motivated to make the necessary changes in her life. She willingly agreed to join high school.
Pamela is now a grade nine student at MOHI’s Joska girls and the reports we are getting are all good. She is a well-behaved student, she is active in sports and has become an active member of the school’s student-led Christian Union. She has shared with us how happy she is to be in school and even regrets the time she wasted.
Pamela is now a good role model who is giving advice to the younger girls as she encourages them to make the right choice at the right time. We thank God for this transformation we are witnessing.
- We were blessed to have Outlook Christian Church visit us this term. This wonderful team conducted VBS sessions where they taught our students Bible stories, arts and craft skills as well as some new songs which our students are still singing to date.
- They also engaged in community evangelism together with the social workers which brought a positive change to the parents and the community at large.
- They went for home visits where they met with and interacted with their sponsored children as well as their families.
- They took the 2021 grade eight class on a fun-filled outing. The 40 students got to view wildlife and snakes and then had fun swimming and feasting. The outing was aimed at motivating our former students as they transition to high school.
- We had 72 grade seven boys and girls attend the Angaza Camp in Kilifi. They came back with a greater commitment to reading the Word of God and to prayer. We are grateful that the transformation has started in their lives.
- We thank God for our social workers who successfully carried out recruitment of our kindergarten class.
- All our academic calendar activities went on as envisioned and we are grateful that there were no interruptions. All our students sat through a series of assessments that are aimed at gauging their academic progress and the results are encouraging.
- We are glad that Ignite, a program that we use to spiritually nourish our students, is now back. Our students were actively engaged in it and the testimonies coming out of this activity help us to know that transformation is happening.
- Pray for the health and robustness of our staff, students and their parents
- Pray for security within the Korogocho Grogan community, more so the safety of our staff as they go into the community and interact with residents.
- Pray for the political stability of our nation, Kenya during this electioneering period. We pray for peace to prevail before, during and after the August 9th election.
