BWe are especially proud of Jennifer who in this year graduated from University as a lawyer! The young lady was still a baby when she arrived at our SOS children’s village, SOS mother Francisca tells us: “Jennifer has already in her early years stood her grounds to gain better grades and fulfill her dreams of a good profession.” Currently, three more girls are pursuing law courses at school and are studying fervently to graduate victoriously.”

 

Aside from studying, there is also time for other activities like sports, music and art. Every child is given a chance to discover individual talents. Like Bright and his sisters who have won several prizes at school

competitions. School coordinator Isaac says: “I always feel happy seeing them rejoice over a successful display at a school event or official ceremony. They carry each other on their shoulders and chant songs of victory on their way to their family houses.”
