Dear partners and friends,
We want to express our sincere gratitude to our God almighty for taking us through the second term of 2018 successfully. We are also indebted to the partners’ efforts that have seen us grow to a great magnitude.

Blessings,
Charity Mwangi
Center Manager

Hope transforms!

 

Joseph is currently a sixth-grade student at MOHI’s Napuu center. He grew up in a low-income family affected by quite a number of cases of disease and a vicious cycle of poverty. The unbearable situation has forced the family to live from hand-to-mouth and, in many cases, sleep on empty stomachs. His father is the family’s breadwinner, working as a casual laborer. They are often not able to afford more than one meal in a day.
 
The family’s economic situation has interfered with the children’s psychological state. Things got worse when Joseph’s parents and siblings were diagnosed to be immune-suppressed. MOHI staff took this with a lot of concern and with the seriousness it deserves. These children were enrolled immediately into the MOHI program and admitted for formal schooling at MOHI. Guidance and counseling for the family by the outreach team has seen the family change from a dependent family to a self-sustaining family.

Joseph, however, felt upset when he reached fifth grade, looking back at his home and realizing that his family needed more hands to fend for their survival. He has, on many occasions, attempted to drop out of school and join his father on his casual jobs, but our interventions have yielded more fruits than one can imagine. Joseph is now stable in school, one of the first beneficiaries of our boarding facilities, and he is a happy soul. His siblings, Irene and David, joined him at the boarding school as well.

Term highlights


There was a parents’ meeting that incorporated the election of PTA members to help represent each grade level.

At the beginning of the term the center received a team of six student interns from Nairobi Chapel, a church that partners with MOHI. They have done amazingly well with both our education department and the outreach team.
We have witnessed the continuation of the dormitory construction in the school since the term started. The second is now under construction
Our children participated in soccer competitions as well as music festivals that were organized in the county.
We also witnessed construction of a children’s playground. In the entire Turkana county, there is no other school with such facilities and this makes our children feel very loved and cared for.

Working together for transformation


Parkview Christian Church visited and helped conduct a VBS. This students really enjoyed the lessons and the activities.
Eastside Christian Church visited and helped with home construction. Five of our needy Napuu families from various neighborhood benefited from this project with five houses. This project targeted mostly the elderly, widowed and less fortunate who have children in MOHI.

Additionally, Eastside helped run a mobile clinic in the community. There was treatment of some of the chronic conditions affecting members of the community by the medical practitioners. Eastside also participated in MOHI’s “Bring the Light” program and provided food baskets to community members. This is one of the ways of expressing love and showing them the true light of Jesus. Each child in our boarding facilities got a treat: swimming in one of the prestigious hotels near our school. A staff dinner was held where all the MOHI staff and our partners enjoyed meals together in a classic hotel courtesy of the visiting team.
Christ’s Church of the Valley visited and held a medical camp at the center. Our children, some parents and community members benefited from the medical camp. Our school also participated in the 2018 MOHI Soccer Championship, where the best teams were awarded trophies courtesy of CCV.

Please join us in prayer

  • We are trusting God for the future completion of our dormitory that is still under construction and that we may be able to accommodate more children next year.
     
  • For our first group of eighth-grade students who will sit for the Kenya National Examinations in November 2018. Pray with us that success will follow them throughout their studies.
     
  • For God's favor and grace as we conduct community outreach and that the power of the blood of Jesus will surpass all the traditional and cultural practices that may hinder the power of the Holy Spirit from penetrating the community.
     
  • We are looking forward to starting our own high school in Lodwar to enable the smooth transition from primary school to high school. Pray with us as we pursue approval by the government and as we pursue funds.

 588 students at the Napuu school are unsponsored.
