Our Kids

We deal with many social and cultural issues as we strive to ensure that our children are provided with the best opportunities; from smart children who do not have a good primary foundation in literacy which prevents them from expressing themselves confidently, to children being so malnourished in their first year with us that they need medical intervention. Sometimes we even have to deal with the threat of withdrawal of a child by one parent who wants to see a daughter married off, against the wish of the other parent. These are the realities of the children we support.

Our goal is always to give our children the best opportunities to fulfil their potential, and we work tirelessly with our partner schools to make this happen.

Balaraba
SS2(Year 11)

Joined 2010

Balaraba Sidi won a scholarship onto our program in 2010, she is incredibly bright and articulate. Unfortunately her time on the program was dodged with tensions between religious and cultural beliefs and a western style education. We dealt  with her father wanting to withdraw her from school for marriage,  and her mom wanting her to complete her education. Sadly Bala's father died suddenly in 2015, and her father's family withdrew her from school, a year before her graduation.
We sincerely hope that the 5 years of education Bala received will stand her in good stead. See more of her story
Farouk

JSS2(Year 8)
Joined 2012

Farouk had a difficult time adjusting to the secondary school standards. The school eventually suggested he should be held back a year. We have limited resources, but we were loath to give up on Farouk. In the end, and with great support from his mother, we decided to withdraw him from boarding school but support him at his local secondary where his mum would be closer.
