Mogra;restoring Hope To The Hopeless

By a female, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of MOGRA;RESTORING HOPE TO THE HOPELESS Mogra star Academy is an institution which provides education at both primary and Secondary levels.It is an institution which restores hope unto the hopeless and provides a better foundation for a brighter future to the pupils and students. The institution not only provides education but also food and shelter to the orpahsn destitutes. The school is situated in Mathare North while the children's orphanage is located in Muthaiga Estate. Mogra as an institution offers free lunch during school days,as well as quality education by the professional teachers. The school began from 1999 and thro'the eleven past years,the institution has changed the lives of may from children to their disabled parents i.e to those who have parents and at least their homes. Many have been transformed from street children to mention a few to hopeful pupils and students whose destinies can now be recognised. The school also caters for the orphans and destitutes higher education after they have perfomed well and scored better grades in their sec.education.My hope is to see the institution developed inorder to rescue many lives out there in the streets,since these children are tommorow's leaders[EMMACULATE].

The Undying Hope

By a female, 31-45 years old, in Mumias, Kenya
Map of THE UNDYING HOPE I attended a colourful wedding of my friends Richard Odhiambo Ralingo and Evelyn Namave on 30th December 2008 on Worlds Day in our church. Their wedding made news and earned them respect from those who earlier tormented them.They showed the world that there was still life after testing positive.The minister of Health by then Hon Beth Mugo and our area MP were among the dignatries who graced their wedding.Several media houses covered the event that saw the church filled to capacity. Most people had come to witness the union of two people whom they had been expecting to die anytime.People who once called them''package of virus'' were seated at the back of the church shedding silent tears.Let me bet,they were happy tears. The couple now visits churches,schools,youth groups and institutions talking to people about HIV and AIDS.They decided to go public in order to help the young and the old understand the reality of HIV and AIDS and hopefully protect themselves and still live positively.
