As summer draws to a close, September is a season of new beginnings for the ladies of our program. For little two-year-old Lara*, this means starting at nursery daycare! Lara arrived in our program when she was three months old. Her teenage mum had been left homeless when the local shelter closed suddenly in the middle of winter, and after hearing about our program she knocked on our door with her baby in her arms. Since then Lara and her mum have done so well and it has been a real joy to watch this beautiful little girl grow up. Now that she will start at the local nursery, her mum is ready to start looking for a job and creating a new future for herself and Lara.
Another one of our ladies moved into her own house this summer. Vera* is an orphan who inherited a house but has been living in shelters and our program for several years after experiencing severe violence. She has enjoyed our program; healing from emotional trauma and learning to read and write a little as well as gaining life skills and new confidence. Vera is ready now for new independence in her own home! However, after leaving her house empty through several winters it had become mouldy and some of the walls were tumbling down. Luckily another local NGO brought a team of volunteers to fix up the house, and Vera was able to move in recently. She is so happy to be back in her own home and is really looking forward to a peaceful and independent future.
Thank you so much for your support which helps ladies like Vera and kids like Lara get back on their feet and have new lives of hope and independence.
