Hope Transforms: A Success Story
Ted* is a year 12 student at Turkana High School. He is 20 years old and the third born of a family of 7 children. They live with their parents in Napusimoru, a remote community. Ted’s father is a pastoralist while his mother is a housewife. During the long standing drought in Northern Kenya many of their livestock died and making ends meet was an uphill task.
Ted and his sister have been a part of MOHI for a while now with Ted having started at our primary school in Napusimuru. Despite the difficult economic times that the family was facing, Ted and his sister managed to stay in school and receive regular meals because they were a part of MOHI’s feeding program. In 2019 Ted completed his primary education and joined us at Turkana High School.
Ted was doing well in school and had made friends and blended into highschool well. But when he got to year 10 his behavior changed. The pandemic had the students home for a long time and during this time many of them looked for casual labor to put food on the table. Ted was among them. When school reopened Ted became reluctant to come back. He had his mind set on becoming a motorcycle taxi driver and ferrying people from one place to another. While in this business he got into the wrong crowd and started drinking. He ran away from his home in Napusimuru and went to live with a friend in Lodwar town.
Our social workers and school chaplain together with his parents were determined to find Ted and bring him back to school to pursue his education. When they did they started to talk to Ted about his future and the things he could achieve with an education. They also told him about the love of Jesus. Soon Ted came back to school. He seemed even more excited than before about coming to school. He would arrive early and actively participate in devotion and in class.
We thank God for Ted and for his life. We pray that God continues to guide him on his path.
