Big family syndrome
Many times where one comes from greatly defines him/her, their character and has a lot to do with their future. Esther comes from an overwhelmingly large family of about 35 people. In such a family, it was close to impossible for her to have the basics that she would need. From physical needs to even the psychological needs such as attention and affection. This was because her parents failed most of the time to equitably divide attention among their children. This indeed is one of the reasons Esther developed a timid character.
During the ministry outreaches in her village, Esther was found and she was enrolled as a beneficiary. The ministry became her other family that created room for her to overcome her timid tendencies, grow in her invisible unrealized characteristics and also make use of the opportunity to go to school irrespective of the many siblings she had.
Her journey through school has finally materialized and she has been able to graduate with a national certificate in hair dressing. The best part of all this is the fact that she has acquired a skill that no one can take away from her.
In her community or anywhere in the country she can be able to earn a living. The joy we feel as Unreached Africa cannot be hidden, seeing that Esther broke through into a skilled and passionate young lady. Having overcome barriers from a family like hers, this is none other than the Grace of God.
It took the miracle of her sponsors standing with her in this journey. And as she now graduates from the ministry, it is such a joy to know that Esther is going to lead a life of transformation.
Just like Esther persevered to success, there is a lot more potential that lies in many girls and boys in the Unreached villages of Uganda, so this is an opportunity for you as a friend to partner with us to see change and transformation in the world.
