Hope Transforms: A Success Story
*Sally is a grade five student at the Napuu center. She is the fourth born in a family of nine children and she is the eldest girl. Her parents do not have the means to take care of their family and rely on well-wishers for their survival.
Sally was brought up in a community that is among the marginalized communities in Kenya. People in this community are yet to fully let go of harmful cultural beliefs and practices. For example, education is not a priority in this community. This not only goes against the basic rights of a child, but also perpetuates poverty in the region. They believe the girl-child is an asset to the family and should be married off at between 10-15years. It is therefore not uncommon to find a girl as young as seven years already marked for marriage. Such a girl will not go to school but rather engages in household chores as she waits for the marriage.
That was the fate awaiting Sally after she turned 7. Thankfully, she was rescued from early marriage by the area government official who took her to live with her cousin who lives in Lodwar town. With the official’s help, Sally joined grade one at a local primary school and studied there until grade three. Her school attendance was inconsistent since she used to be sent home for school fees and other school requirements. She was also poorly groomed because there was no money to buy her clothes.
Our social workers got to know about Sally during a home visit where they found her at home instead of being in school. After a thorough assessment, she was recruited to join the school as a grade four pupil and she became part of the MOHI family in August 2021. Since then, her self-esteem has improved and she has grown physically and psychologically. Her guardian also tells us that she is very reliable and helpful at home. At school, Sally is a model student; respectful, focused, and committed to her studies.
We have hope that her dream to become a nurse will be realized as she continues to work hard and put her hope in God.
- In late February, our 124 kindergarten students graduated in a colorful ceremony. The pupils are fired up as they start their junior primary studies when school resumes on April 25th.
- The Napuu skills training center held its very first graduation ceremony. A total of 66 trainees graduated with tailoring and dress-making skills. These are 66 families which have been transformed! Praise be to God!
- The MOHI staff held 21 days of prayers and fasting. This period saw the great manifestation of God’s power and great revelations. Members of staff got an opportunity to come together and worship as they made known their personal needs and that of the center.
- This term saw the recruitment of 120 young children who are set to join the school at the beginning of next term. Rescuing these young children who would not have otherwise got a chance to be in school is a great experience. We are committed to nurturing them and walking with them through life’s journey.
- We hosted the MOHI-US staff team which comprised 11 visitors. We were excited as they interacted with our pupils, especially in traditional dances. It was a fun-filled visit and we cannot wait to host them again.
- Women from Mountain Christian Church held a Ladies Conference at a church hall near the school. Our female staff members were part of the attendees and we look forward to having them be good ambassadors of what they learned during the conference.
- We are trusting God for funds to build a dining hall that will accommodate the students when they take their meals. We can use the same hall as a place to gather for our Sunday service and other Christian meetings
- We are trusting God for the continued transformation and liberation of this community from alcoholism.
- We have 862 unsponsored students. We are trusting God that each one of them will receive sponsorship.
