Welcome to our 3rd generation!

Posted by on Mar 21, 2018
Welcome to our 3rd generation!

On the 9th of Jan­u­ary, we wel­comed the 3rd gen­er­a­tion of youth as they moved in to their new homes. Of the 14 in this class, 4 are from new children’s homes and or­ga­ni­za­tions. We are so ex­cit­ed about fol­low­ing them in their next steps in life.
In the first three months, the youth have got­ten to know each oth­er, have fa­mil­iar­ized them­selves with their new home, and start­ed their train­ing, job search, and study­ing.

8 out of our 14 youth al­ready have jobs, 11 are al­ready en­rolled at the uni­ver­si­ty or INFOP, and the oth­er three are tak­ing their ad­mis­sions test be­fore the end of March.

Planning the next generations

Dur­ing the first week of March, we had in­for­ma­tion­al meet­ings for or­phan­age di­rec­tors and youth to come and hear about our pro­gram. From now un­til April 20, we are open to re­ceive ap­pli­ca­tions from in­ter­est­ed youth for en­try into the pro­gram in Au­gust 2018 or Jan­u­ary 2019.

As soon as we have all ap­pli­ca­tions re­viewed, we will start the first phase of our in­ter­view process where we go to each children’s home to get to know each youth bet­ter in the place they feel most com­fort­able.

Ad­di­tion­al­ly, we are work­ing on es­tab­lish­ing a net­work of church­es that will com­mit to part­ner with youth ag­ing out of children’s homes and be­come men­tors and peo­ple of change for these youth in need of a sol­id re­la­tion­ship in their tran­si­tion.

Please pray for us in this process. The need for men­tor­ship and guides is so big! We know that with the help of God we will be able to reach out too many more youth than we have ever dreamed of.

There are so many ways that you can help these youth get a good start out in so­ci­ety.
We are grate­ful for your con­tin­ued prayers for them and our pro­gram. If you feel called to help fur­ther, your fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance (at any lev­el) would help us as­sure that our youth have the sup­port they need to suc­ceed.
