Hope transforms


Mr. Michael Eshitemi* is a father of eight children, four of whom are in MOHI schools. He has been a parent at Baba Dogo center for seven years. In July 2007, Michael lost his dear wife to malaria. This was a major setback, as she was a productive farmer who supported the family. A month after the burial of Michael’s wife, due to the political unrest that was experienced in Kenya, Michael’s home was set on fire by unknown people. This distressed the family as they lost everything they had.
 
The children were very heartbroken. We consoled them tirelessly so as to help them cope with their situation psychologically. At one point, Michael had resolved to take all his children to his rural area home as he was not able to take care of them in Nairobi. After he had a talk with our residential counselor, he began searching for a job. In December, he found a job as a painter. MOHI helped him come up with a budget that would help him be financially stable.
 
In April 2018, he was able to set up a small business for his oldest daughter who had completed 12th grade. This has helped him supplement his budget in caring for his children. When students reported back to school after the April holiday, Michael was among the first parents to pay school commitment fees.

Michael is now a happy man and his children are well settled in school. Their performance has also improved in class.

Term highlights


Our girls’ soccer team participated in a regional tournament and brought home the championship trophy. The boys’ soccer team was first runner-up. We value our staff and enjoy working as a team. We are happy that we experienced no staff turnover during the term. We were excited that our students behaved very well throughout the term.

Working together for transformation


Eastside Christian Church carried out a VBS with all the students in the Baba Dogo school. The focus was on the story of Jonah and it included a carnival session which was great fun for the children. In addition, they also evangelized and did MOHI’s "Bring the Light" program, where they donated solar lights to those they evangelized.
 
 
Please join us in prayer
  • For safety for our students during their school term break. 
  • For the salvation and transformation of the young people in our community.
