Hope Transforms: A Success Story
*Violet is a kindergarten student who was recruited and joined our program after an assessment was done and it was found that the family is indeed needy.
Violet’s mother is a housewife and her father is a casual laborer who is a heavy drinker and is addicted to drugs. Because of his addiction, the man does not provide for his family since all the money he makes goes to feed his addictions. As a result, there has been marital strife and as the situation got worse, Violet’s mother left her matrimonial home. She took her daughter with her and they went to live with Violet’s grandparents in the village. This meant that Violet could not come to school.
The social worker initiated a follow-up with Violet’s parents and her mother said she is willing to come back if only her husband would change. Our social worker met with the father on the first day, but he was drunk and their discussion did not end well. During the second visit, they met with Virginia’s paternal grandmother and the father. This time round he was sober and willing to have a discussion. An agreement was reached and Virginia’s mother came back after two days. Virginia reported to school, but was not in good health. She was treated at MOHI’s Joska clinic and she is now doing better.
The family was enrolled into the healthy homes program where they were evangelized and also trained on the components of healthy family life. In the process, Violet’s father got to learn more about the harmful effects of drugs to the family setup and it prompted him to change. He reduced his drinking habits and became a little bit more responsible. As he made changes, he started looking for employment and by God’s grace, he landed a job at a security firm. He is now providing for his family and the entire family regularly attends the local church.
We are grateful to God for the changes we are witnessing in this family. We are still evangelizing them for we know real change can only come from hearts devoted to Christ. Please keep this family in your prayers.

- We held a colorful graduation ceremony for our 33 kindergarten students who are set to join grade one on April 25th. It has been exciting watching these young ones learn how to read and write.
- We also thank God for our 122 grade eight students who successfully completed the national primary school exit exam. The exam was held from March 7th-9th. We are trusting God for a 100 percent transition to high school for all our students.
- Our 78 grade 12 students also successfully completed their national secondary school exit exam. The exam started on February 28th and ran through to April 1st. All our candidates were adequately prepared and we are hopeful that they will get good grades.
- Pray that our 394 unsponsored students will receive sponsorship.
