Aisha was found at age six, on the streets and hungry. Both her parents had passed away and she was left with only an older sister to look out for her and her four other siblings. A neighbour, posing as their grandmother, sent the children out to work and kept all their earnings. Aisha was at great risk of being abused or even trafficked.
Luckily, Aisha was identified by a social worker through HOPE’s Child Watch Programme and it was then that Aisha came under HOPE’s wing. She moved in to one of our protection homes, where she received care, love and an education. Now 21, Aisha has a part time teaching position at HOPE’s Be Kind Boy’s Home, as well as a volunteering role in Edu-Care. She is a wonderful influence on her peers and the children she works with. It was through an Education Sponsorship that she was enabled to complete her higher education. Aisha’s life would have been very different without HOPE’s intervention. Aisha’s story has been a real inspiration to HOPE supporters, staff, and most importantly, to other children in our care.
