Hope Transforms: A Success Story
Ben* joined our Korogocho Nyayo center in 2019 when he was in grade 6. His family had been having a hard time after their father left them. Ben’s younger sibling suffers from Autism and when Ben’s father realized this he left the family of 3 children and their mother.
Ben’s mother became overwhelmed with the burden of providing for her children on her own and so she fell into a depression. She was no longer able to take care of her children and as a result, they relied on well-wishers for food, but this often meant that they went hungry.
After Ben was enrolled he would rarely come to school, this is what caught the attention of his teachers who asked the social worker to pay his family a visit. While Ben’s mother narrated her woes it was apparent that she was in no position to keep Ben accountable and so Ben would wander into the streets and not go to school.
The social worker put in a lot of effort to visit the family frequently, counseling Ben’s mother, giving her the right tools to help her cope with the situation, and praying with her. As time went by all the counseling sessions with Ben’s mother began to bear fruit. She was encouraged to look for casual jobs that would bring in some income. She started washing clothes for people and this lifted her self-esteem. Her new job has given her the opportunity to afford to feed her family. Soon she started to attend a nearby church and she managed to enroll her special needs child into a special needs school.
Ben now comes to school regularly, his academic performance has improved as he has been able to concentrate and things at home are doing better. We continue to pray for Ben’s mother’s mental health.
