My name is Salima and I have two children. When Retrak came into our community, they showed us how best to interact with our children, and how to nurture them into being responsible people.
I used to be very bitter and couldn’t listen to my children –I wanted the best for them, but I didn’t know the right way to guide them. Retrak showed us how to handle our children – I’ve learned how to draw them closer to me and talk. Retrak also held some sessions just for children. One of my children used to go out collecting scrap and wouldn’t listen when I tried to guide him. It was so worrying seeing him loitering around – but through Retrak’s life skills lessons, he’s a changed person. He listens to me, and tells me where he’s going. And now he’s stopped looking for scrap and is focusing on his studies.
