A few years ago, a woman arrived at JWHS with a story of widowhood, and mothering her grandchildren. We met John. He had on clothes that would have fit him a year ago, ripped, torn and tired he shyly stood by his grandmother. He needed a uniform and shoes before he would be allowed to return to school.
Now several years later, a new uniform, shoes and supplies every year, this year he in addition to his uniform, he received a blanket, and a solar light to make study at night possible. This year, his grandmother grabbed a Jembe, (hoe) and turned over a good portion of our garden in thanks.
Progress all around. I am privileged to be the hands to extend our donors love and concern. Thank you for making it possible.
