Tamina Wangari is a mother of two girls and lives in the Korogocho Grogan community. One day during a usual home visit, our Community Health Evangelism (CHE) trainer and Spiritual Discipleship Officer (SDO) met her. She was friendly and welcoming and this made it easy for them to create an instant relationship with her.
During future visits with Tamina, our staff realized that she was facing a lot of disputes in the family. She had also been a victim of domestic violence which made her separate from her husband. Tamina was very much discouraged in life and had lost all hope because she did not know where to start. Our CHE trainer encouraged and reassured her during counseling sessions that there is always a second chance. The SDO also shared the gospel with her and after a few months, she received Christ.
With the support of MOHI, Tamina started a small business selling second-hand clothes and handbags. This enabled her to take care of her family.
Her trust with MOHI grew stronger to a point where she disclosed to our CHE trainer that she had dropped out of college due to lack of fees. She had been studying social work. She was advised on how to start saving so she could enroll back to college and finish up her course. After a short while, she re-enrolled in college, took two more exams and was able to graduate with a diploma in social work.
Today, Tamina also leads CHE initiatives within the community as a CHE Chairlady. She is also a committed member of Outreach Hope Church Korogocho and the overall secretary in church.
