Jenny is one of our girls in high school that still continues to benefit from our orphanage program through sponsorship opportunities. She is one of our 5 girls in high school that have an opportunity to continue with her high school education. She joined our program 10 years ago when she was left with her aging grandmother who took care of them after losing both parents to HIV/AIDs. Before we considered admitting her in the orphanage, her life was tattered that even getting access to three meals a day was a dream not to mention education, medication and clothing. She and her sister were blessed to join our program after considering their story. Staying with an aging grandmother even made her story worse since she was like a provider to her grandmother, she could join unscrupulous behavior like prostitution, she could even get pregnant at an early age, or worse enter into early marriage to support her remaining family.
It's with joy and pride that she is off of the hook of bad prey and she is no longer vulnerable to such unscrupulous behavior. What we see now is her bright face every single day and we know that her life has improved as she can now comfortably have basic needs, and she is able to attend school and that her dream of becoming a teacher is still valid . We are able to meet her high school fees through sponsorship funds and some proceeds that we have in our garden project that is supported through the American Foundation for Children with AIDS. It is with much joy that we are able to do this for orphans.
With good guardians offered to her in our ministry, Jenny is growing up to be a well mannered girl with lots of respect to her fellows and adults in the ministry. We received a good report from her school that she is the best in discipline and character.
