Hope Transforms: A Success Story
Mercy* is a student at the Napuu center. This 14-year-old is the third born in a family of eight and lives with her family in the neighboring community.
Mercy was born into a community that does not value education, let alone educating girls. In fact, she is the only child who has gone to school and her two sisters are already married. This was also meant to be Mercy’s fate until MOHI and the local leaders came to her rescue.
Marrying her off was looked upon positively because of the wealth it would have brought to the family, especially since they are not financially stable. Her father is a herdsman and her mother weaves mats for a living. Her mother is the sole provider using sales from her weaved goods and brooms to feed her children; this is what determines whether the family will have food or not on any given day.
Because Mercy had already joined the school in 2019 as a grade three student and she was doing well in her studies, we used this to convince her parents that she should stay in school. With the backing we received from the local leaders, her parents agreed not to interfere with her education.
Being able to keep her in school has been a blessing for this young girl. She is a responsible, hardworking student who aspires to be a teacher in the future. She is also a good Sunday school teacher and overall a good example to be emulated by other girls in the community.
Please keep Mercy in your prayers that she will complete her education beyond high school without any hitches.
- We are very proud of our environmental club that has ensured trees are planted in the school. In doing so, they have learned that there are better ways to conserve and take good care of the environment.
- We are so proud of the Christian Union that is doing well. They have formed a powerful choir team and great worship leaders are emerging from the team. Starting next month, they will be competing and challenging other schools in the choir competitions.
- A major highlight for this term was receiving a new bus! All our students and staff are very happy since this bus will make learning and exploring outside the school easier. We are really grateful!
- Staff from MOHI’s health department came and conducted training for our teachers on nutritional assessments of children below age five.
- After this one-day training, they then spent time with our students conducting the assessments. Those learners identified as having nutritional issues were given multivitamins and suggestions on how best to improve their nutrition.
- Our partners at Orphans Promise toured our center this term. This is the organization that donated the bus to us and we were honored to have them attend its official handover. We are blessed to have such a good partnership with them.
- Pray for God’s protection and good health for our students and staff especially during this pandemic.
- Pray for the families we serve that they will be economically empowered and will live in peace and harmony with their families and their neighbors.
- Prayers for our former grade eight students who sat for the national grade eight exit exams and are now set to join high school. Pray for a smooth transition.
