HUSSEINWe have bittersweet news to share in regards to Hussein's journey with MSK and the Olive Branch for Children. Our commitment to Hussein has come to a close as he completed his mechanic qualifications in November and was recently appointed manager of an auto-parts shop at the garage where he completed his apprenticeship.
During our partnership with Hussein, about three years ago, he reached out the Olive Branch to sponsor his girlfriend, Mary, to complete her college education. Through our community's support, Mary is now a qualified teacher looking for a job! They are now able to purchase a piece of land to start their lives together. Seeing the fruits of Hussein's hard work and our community's ongoing support and dedication, it brings us such joy to see our work come full-circle. Our commitment to Hussein over many years has ensured his success, education and opportunity and we couldn't be more thrilled for him and his partner, Mary.
CLEVERClever has now started Grade 5 and is at the top of his class. He is vibrant and charming -- he is the first to pull a prank on someone at the Peace Home and the first to climb up the mango trees when the season is in full swing. His English is definitely the best at the Peace Home. In two years when he begins high school, he will move the to Zion Home to complete his studies.
Edina, the mama at the Peace Home has an extremely strong bond with Clever. It is amazing to watch the two of them together. He adores her and she him. Her guidance and love have been instrumental to his growth and development. His cheekiness, intelligence and curiosity can be directly attributed to the love and care he has received from Edina.
Clever has many dreams. Sometimes, he wants to be a police officer. Other times, he dreams of owning a big business On other days, he wants to be a doctor.
