Back to school! a second chance in life

It has been a great year for HODI and the for HODI teams. This year three child mothers are back to school and the mother of one of the girls who benefited from the scheme was in tears as she received the news!

“To me the life of my girl had come to an end with marriage, when you asked her to go back to school, the big question for me was how and who will pay her fees? But today I know with this support she has a second chance and without your support she will be a child nursing another child with nothing to live on.”

After being rescued and returning home she joined the team again was training with the other girls and so much has changed in her, she is more courageous and no longer ashamed of being a child mother. The HODI girl’s team gave her the motivation and now she is an inspiration and an example to other young mothers her age.

HODI boys and girls teams trained for 5 weeks and at the end of the training the boys represented HODI in an international tournament in Moshi Tanzania. While two of the girls from the girls team traveled to Germany as part of a soccer exchange program.

The process of purchasing the parcel of land has begun but has not been finalized yet. The process of has begun of giving child mothers a second chance to go back to school and in the wider community there is a greater need to reduce the high dropout rates among the girl's. It is one thing to help them go back to school and we need your support to retain them and ensure completion.

We are grateful for your continued support as your support is making us to reach to the most vulnerable members of the community and give a second chance to child mother's!
