Footprints Orphanage updated their profile picture.
Two weeks ago Footprints was faced with a situation that we've not had to deal with before. A young girl of 11 yrs who has never been allowed to go to school was defiled by a man of 56 yrs after being forced by her own family into an early so called 'marriage' she had endured 3 months of this horrific situation before being rescued by the police where the man was arrested. Some African cultures are still something
I will never comprehend. The police and law courts agreed she should be placed where her care and protection could be assured.Her names and pictures have been protected for obvious reasons but Footprints was awarded a 3yr Committal Order from the courts. Since then she has been living at Footprints making new friends, she is now going to school with all our other children, she has received the medical care she needed and as she settles into her new home counseling will slowly begin to try and erase this horrific experience, we hope the smiles that are appearing on her face now will increase and she will become the child she had so desperately missed out on !
When you know the Vision you had to make life changing differences to African children becomes a reality !!!! Thank you to everyone who has helped Footprints save the life of Nicholas he has been with us nearly 3 months and thriving everyday !
Excitement at Footprints as our chicken project produces it's very own chicks !! The children are happy and proud to be part of Footprints sustainability project from collecting fertilized eggs from our own layers to incubating them in our very own incubator (kindly donated ) to hatching day and a very happy Mamma K
