Hope Transforms: A Success Story
*Clara is a grade eight student at the Madoya center. She started exhibiting behavior that can only be described as brazen-faced lying, being undisciplined, and rebellious. Despite being a girl with so much potential, Clara decided she wanted a life where she had no rules, no school, where she could enjoy the company of her friends and have the freedom to do as she pleased.
This unexpected change in behavior started with random absenteeism from school with the excuse that she was unwell. When it became too much, the social worker and headteacher reached out to Clara’s mother with the intention of finding out what the real problem was. To our shock, the girl’s mother was not only uncooperative, but she was also completely unmoved by the issues we raised. The social worker kept doing several home visits to try and meet with the mother in order to discuss a way forward but these visits bore no fruits. The social worker also held regular counseling sessions with the girl, but there was no change in behavior. The absenteeism became worse because Clara started missing even exams.
The parents totally refused to cooperate with the social worker and the class teacher. They would not pick up our phone calls or even respond to our text messages requesting them to come to the school so we could agree on how to help their daughter. Left without any other option, we agreed as a team that it was time to involve government officials. We reached out to the local authority who summoned Clara’s parents and their daughter to his office. We were also in attendance and without mincing words, the parents were told that they would be answerable for any day their child missed school.
It is said that nothing is impossible for a soul willing to change its ways. After this meeting, we found ourselves with a brand new Clara in our hands. One who no longer skips class, one who gets to school on time and actively participates in all class activities. One who let go of the wrong friends she had made and who decided to mend her ways. Clara’s academic performance has greatly improved and we can now say that she is utilizing her God-given potential.
Clara’s story shows us that if we trust in God, He has His own way of making things right. He is a God of second chances who knows how to restore and redeem His people. We give glory to His name!
- We held a colorful graduation ceremony for our 104 kindergarten students who are set to join grade one on April 25th. It has been exciting watching these young ones learn how to read and write.
- All our academic calendar activities went on as envisioned and we are grateful that there were no interruptions. All our students successfully sat for their end-of-term exams and will be moving onto the next grade. Glory be to God.
- We are also very grateful for the resumption of the amazing Ignite program which has been on hold since the Covid-19 outbreak.
- We also thank God for our 65 grade eight students who successfully completed the national primary school exit exam. The exam was held from March 7th-9th. We are trusting God for a 100 percent transition to high school for all our students.
