Teaching changes lives

Dorcas & Samuel 

These two are an amazing couple, life in the village of Miti Mingi has not been easy. Dorcas & Samuel have four children, and have always been determined that life would be better for the children, and that somehow they would manage to send them to school.

There are almost no jobs in the village, and these two grabbed every chance to attend any training offered. They have been faithful in Community Health Care Training, Business Development and training on parenting and marriage. Still no jobs came along and eventually Samuel had to go far away from home to find some casual labour. This left Dorcas at home to walk miles to collect water, find food, and look after the four children. Times were tough.

Then during a Business Development session, Dorcas started to think outside the box, she began kicking out the poverty spirit, and a new level of determination and hope rose up in her. Joining with a few others in the group, Dorcas began to save, little by little, a few Kenyan shillings at a time…… it was hard.

Now they have a small shop in the village, it is doing well, they are able to send their children to school, and Samuel no longer has to go away from home to work.

Samuel says “Thank you PottersHeart for bringing this noble teachings to us. They have changed our lives.”
