80 Children.. 80 Inspiring Stories.

So yesterday, the children came to school for their academic reports. Every class was well represented. Except for those who didnt show up. And, it is because they are back on the street to hawk goods. To make profit for their guardians/parents. Apparently, Summer Hols isnt much fun for some rural children, Not a learning period as most children have it. It is that time of the year to get back on the street to hawk! Yes, some of these children sell fruit, plaintain, foodstuff, fish etc. We smile when we meet...:). There are verrry good multi-taskers amongst them. Very Good One.

One of such is a 10 year girl..who spends more time in her guardian's shop and street, selling. She closes late, 11pm...every day! (true story). It was a turg of war lol before she was released to us to attend school. This term, she had the best result in her class - Basic 1!! I wish I know how she does it. #Multitasking #TopGainer #NoChildDesrvesToBeOutOfSchool

Another Top Gainer is a girl in Basic 4. Esther. Like the Biblical Esther. The last question you would want to ask her is about her parents. Never do, as she would cry uncontrollably. How much pain she bears, as the thought of losing both parents still lingers.  We met her during our streetwalk and hunt for out-of-school children, last year. She lives with an aged granny. And, for some months now, granny has been ill...and, relocated. A Strong Girl, an Eager learner. This session, inspite of all...challenges, she had the 2nd Position in her class.

Every Child Has A Story.

Their Stories Inspire Us To Do More.

Thanks To Our Friends, and Sponsors. God Used You for These Ones ... Thank You For Every Kobo :) #Blessings #GapStander :p :)
