Hope Transforms: A Success Story
*Peris is a grade six student who joined the center in 2013 as a kindergarten student. The 15-year-old is the fourth born in a family of eleven children and they live with both parents in a village near the school.
Peris comes from a disadvantaged background where getting daily meals and other basic needs met is a challenge. The parents depend on casual jobs – which are not readily available and it was for this reason that we opted to have Peris join our school. The main challenge in dealing with this family is that the parents do not value education and therefore would be okay allowing Peris to miss school every so often. This was discouraging for us because Peris is an above-average student and she can really excel in her academics if properly encouraged.
This year, Peris went missing from school for an extended period. The parents did not appear to know where their daughter was and we opted to seek assistance from the police in looking for her. With their help, we discovered that Peris had traveled to a town that is about 180miles from Lodwar. She was asked to immediately come back and when her mother brought her back to school, we discovered she had gone there with her peers. The social worker started taking the girl through guidance and counselling sessions to show her the importance of having an education and the difference it can make in her life.
In time, Peris’ attitude towards school has changed. She even wrote an apology letter for missing school and agreed to join the boarding program. Now that she is in school all the time, her grades have really improved. She does her homework and classwork without fail, is respectful and cooperative with her teachers, and also takes care of her personal hygiene.
Peris has a dream of becoming a nurse in the future and she is now working towards getting good grades to take her to high school. By the grace of God, we know all this is possible and that she will achieve her dream. We give glory to God for Peris’ change in attitude towards school. We believe she will continue to make even greater progress.
- The perennial water shortage in our center was solved with the installation of two underground reservoirs which are fed by water connection from our high school, our farm, and from the county water supply.
- The resolve for this term was to improve on the discipline of our learners which we have managed to achieve through sound mentorship programs. Reported indiscipline cases of indiscipline have gone down from 45% to 10% currently. We really thank God for this.
- The coming on of the new school administration has revamped our center. Our staff are also rejuvenated and all departments are now working in unity to achieve the greater goal of helping the young ones achieve wholesome growth
- Pray for rains to put a halt to the severe drought ravaging parts of Turkana.
- Pray for financial provision to enable us construct a dining hall that will accommodate our ever-increasing number of learners.
- Pray that our students will remain healthy and that nothing will hamper their academic progress.
