Hope Transforms: A Success Story
*Hilda is a grade eight student at the Napuu center. She and her siblings live in a village near the school with their mother who is a single parent.
The 17-year-old has had a difficult childhood because her mother is an alcoholic who does not care about her children’s welfare. As a result, Hilda and her siblings would often sleep hungry and none of them had ever been to school.
She joined our school as a 10-year-old and we had no choice but to place her in the kindergarten classes – despite her advanced age. Hilda continued to stay with her mother, but it was not easy for her since her mother would abuse her physically and emotionally. This treatment would psychologically torture the child and our social workers tried their best to intervene. They sensitized the mother on a child’s rights and parental responsibility, but it was all in vain. When Hilda got to grade four, we decided to have her removed from the home.
Hilda was taken to live with her uncle who lives some two kilometers from the school and she was happy there because her basic needs were being met. Unfortunately, during the school holidays in April this year, Hilda had a disagreement with her uncle’s wife. She was the one in the wrong and when confronted, Hilda decided to run away from home, drop out of school and get married. Her family members tried their best to find her but they did not succeed. When they informed us at the school, our social worker also joined the search and they eventually found Hilda living with a boyfriend. She looked desperate, untidy, and weak. The social worker prevailed upon her to leave the ‘marriage’ and get back to school. She eventually agreed and came back to school in the month of June – having lost one month of learning.
Hilda was taken through counseling by the social worker as well as being offered spiritual guidance. She is now born again and this has brought on a definite change in her behavior including being reconciled with her uncle’s family. She is active in the school’s spiritual programs and also at her local church and is also a praise and worship team member both at the school and in her church. Hilda is an average student who is focused on her studies, is cooperative in class, tidy, and very well behaved.
We give glory to God for the transformation we have witnessed in Hilda’s life. Please join us as we continue to pray that her mother will also come to experience the same transformative love of Christ.
