Joyce Re-joins School

After her successful rescue from marriage in Saboti division Trans-nzoia West District last December, Joyce Oyiela finally joined one of the local primary schools from where she is expected to get her basic education back on track. She was overjoyed as she donned her new uniform to begin a journey she had longed for. The last visit at the school by one of our volunteer counselors established that she had settled well and made new friends at the school. “They have been very good to me” she said of her classmates. “They have showed me many things that I didn’t know” she added during the interview.

Her class teacher has promised to be close to Joyce in order to assist her catch up with the rest of the pupils who had begun their classes earlier. Other teachers have hailed the intervention made by Juhudi organization and appealed for more efforts since there are many similar cases within the remote villages, which are unreported.

Issues of upkeep and meals should be effectively handled once more sponsors and donors come on board. Juhudi Children in Crisis organization does not consider this as a major distraction to Joyce’s education. However it is still an issue that requires great attention. We are grateful to all the donors who continue making this positive change possible.
