Hope Transforms: A Success Story
*Jehu is a grade six student at our center. He has four siblings and is the second born in the family headed by a single mother.
Jehu lives in an area of Mathare that is is very insecure and the people there are always in constant expectation of police raids. The place is mostly occupied by street families, alcoholics, and drug addicts. Jehu’s mother is herself a recovering drug addict and because of that, she has very little concern for the boy’s education. It was therefore not a big deal to the mother that her son had stopped coming to school and was now loitering around the estates.
When we noticed this trend, the social worker started following up on Jehu every time he did not come to school. Persistent follow-ups, counseling sessions, showing concern, to the boy, and talking to his mother caused Jehu to go back home and even start attending school regularly. We thank God that he has consistently been in school this entire term. We also started evangelizing the family. Their mother said she is of the Muslim faith but Jehu and his siblings agreed to start attending a local church.
Nowadays, the child prays even when he is at home. He does not sneak out of school, and he faithfully does all his school assignments. The entire family has also been linked up with a pastor who is conducting outreach initiatives to share our faith. Jehu was part of the group of boys who went to the Angaza camp in Kilifi and this experience was life-changing for him. He confessed that being at the camp opened his eyes to see that there is more to life than what he has experienced in the slums where he lives.
Jehu’s class teacher also says that the boy’s academic performance has also improved and he is more focused on his studies. We have also connected his mother to MOHI’s family empowerment groups. It is our prayer that she will benefit from the various economic empowerment programs that are offered and that she will learn a skill.
Please keep this family in your prayers as we work towards bringing holistic transformation as we continue to share the love of Jesus Christ with them.
- Our grade six boys had the opportunity to go to the Angaza camp this term. They had a fun-filled time and came back to school so very energized and excited.
- We are proud of our grade three, four, and five students who sat for the inaugural national exam this term in line with the new curriculum. They undertook all their projects successfully.
- Our Wildlife Club members had a fun day out as they toured the Nairobi National Park. It was a truly educational trip where they got to see and identify some of Kenya’s wildlife.
- We were pleased to have the CCV special needs team visit us. They conducted VBS with the Pangani resource room pupils. They also held a training session with our social workers and teachers.
- Pray for our grade eight class that is set to sit for their national primary school exit exam in March 2022.
- Pray that our 229 students who do not have sponsors will receive sponsorship.
- Pray for God’s continued provision and protection upon our students and their parents, our staff members, and the community at large.
