Wahu Receives Counselling Support

By Mercy Kyalo | Programs Officer

Wahu, is 15 years old and in class 6. She is the 2nd born in a family of four siblings, three brothers, she is the only girl. The 3rd and 4th born are her half-brothers.  Her father left her mother when she was very young, her mother then remarried and got two more children.

Her life has been very rough because her step father chased her and her first born brother from home because he is not their biological dad.  They then fled to their grandmother who is very old and is not able to take care of them.  She is therefore forced to leave school very quickly, go to her mother’s house, help with the house chores, which include cooking, washing dishes, bathing her younger brothers etc. before her step father comes back home.  Her mother is then able to send her away with a packet of flour or rice. Should her step father find her home he becomes very angry and beats both of them.

She leaves her mother’s house at 7pm, goes to her grandmother’s house and continues the process with similar chores before settling down late at night to catch up with homework.

Elizabeth was suffering psychologically, she felt rejected and unwanted.  The CHEP program is offering one on one counselling sessions to help her deal with the traumas she faces, and now she can smile.
