Faith in the Juvenile Detention Facility

Faith: Three months ago an email came in. There was an orphan girl placed in a juvenile detention facility for her own protection. Many female orphans are taken in by family members but it is not for humanitarian reasons. The facility knew that juvenile detention is really not a good place for a young girl whose only crime was being an orphan. At the time of contact we did not have the funding for Faith's education.

We hoped that there would be someone of better character to take Faith into their home or donors would assist to move her to a school

Thanks to several small donors, the two pieces came together.  A Kenyan woman working in child affairs was willing to take Faith into her home and pay her support if. she could receive help with her school fees. 

Expanding Opportunities' was able to purchase her uniform, school supplies and pay her school fees. Now Faith is in school. She completed her first end Term Exams for 2012 and did well for someone who has been out of school.  Now she has a bench mark and can work upward from there. 

Thank you donors.
