Hope Transforms: A Success Story

*Maria is an orphan who was raised by an adoptive parent *Carolyne, who took her in years ago from the streets where she was living after losing her parents. The now 22-year-old was still a small child when Carolyne took her in and made her part of her family of ten. Carolyne was not well-to-do and was in fact struggling to make ends meet, but she opted to let this young girl become a part of her family.

Carolyne enrolled Maria as a kindergarten student to MOHI’s Bondeni school but she later transferred her to the Mathare North center where she completed her primary school education in 2013. She went on to high school and MOHI ensured she had everything she needed to successfully complete her education. Maria has always been a hardworking student and she attained a B- which earned her direct admission to university where she is an undergraduate mass communications student. MOHI has been by her side to ensure her university fees are paid and we look forward to her graduation come 2022. 

Right now, Maria lives alone having moved out of Carolyne’s home in a bid to stand on her own two feet. She is able to do casual jobs that enable her to pay her bills and offer whatever support she can to Carolyne, even as she continues with her studies.

We thank God for the progressive transformation the young lady has been able to realize through MOHI, not forgetting the generous support from its partners. All glory to God!
