Robert from Kenya

Before he came to us, Robert* was living with his single, mentally challenged mother and three siblings. His mother’s struggles meant they had no income and they typically depended on neighbours to give them food. Robert wasn’t attending school, was usually hungry, and in bad health.

He arrived at Mitaboni malnourished, nervous, and suffering from skin rashes and ringworm. Immediately he began receiving healthy meals and medical attention and was finally enrolled in school. What a difference we see in this young man! He is flourishing at school and hopes to go to vocational school when he graduates from our programme. His health has greatly improved, as has his confidence. Now he will stand up in front of a group, ready to lead devotions or sing praise songs, and he enjoys singing in the church choir.

His teacher says that he has grown into a responsible young man who is determined to achieve his goals, and we can’t wait to see what God will do in his life.
