On 14th July, 2019 we had the opportunity to host some of Turning Point Trust’s beneficiaries at one of the Centres. The group varied from our first group of beneficiaries to some who completed high school last year. They had the opportunity to serve the students their meals, share memories with each other and some were even brave enough to share their life stories with the entire primary school.
One by one they spoke of how their lives had transformed either because of opportunities taken or missed. They spoke of their time in Turning Point and one thing everyone mentioned apart from the development of infrastructure is how the feeding program was important to them as some joined the education program because of the simple assurance that they will be served of a cup of white porridge every morning. This assurance led them to stay and receive educational support that changed the trajectory of their lives.
These stories carried with them laughter , encouragment, hope and the reminder of how much the feeding program is a part of our story and identity.
