Support Destiny to finish her education

The mission of Juhudi children is to see these vulnerable children and girls pursue their education and achieve their desired goals. Having rescued a few of the girls which were at risk of dropping of the school due to poverty and negligence by their parents. We have seen there is more need since a lot of girls are out of school now and they need our support. We need to take them back to school and pay their school fees, exam fee, food and other many necessities. I want to thank our able donors who have come in handy to support this girls and children. We really appreciate for your anonymous contributions towards our projects.

I therefore, wish to share a story of this girl called Destiny. She is 17 years old from a poor background family where her parents cannot afford to pay for her school fees. It was just this year when we were doing our survey in the schools where we have our beneficiaries. This where the school principal narrated to us this girl. We found that the girl is very intelligent and determine on her studies as per the performance in school and has a very huge fee balance which her parents can’t afford to pay for her to complete her secondary education. We followed up and meet her parents at their home. We found that the poverty level of the family was very high. They had no any source of income to sustain the family. Her parents’ works as laborers in the farms of the rich people.

After long discussion with the girl and her parents we agreed to support the girl fully to pursue her education. It was like a surprise to the parents and the girl. The girl didn’t hide to expressed her joy; “Am very happy for this golden support I have received from Juhudi children, who have never dreamt that one day I will be supported to finish my education. Am now determined to work extra hard to achieve my goals and rescue my parents from poverty. May almighty God bless Juhudi children and give them funds so that they can support other girls like who are suffering out there.”

We look forward to share with you on the progress of Destiny all through her education journey. As Juhudi we believe in her and hope that she will come out as successful girl who will help other girls in the community forever.
