Children are happy and they enjoy attending at the centre.

We had a new family (an uncle caring for three nephews) come to our feeding project. The children are now being fed and enjoying the food. We have heard other parents testify that when their children arrive at home, they are no longer hungry.

What made me excited this month is that the children are getting way more comfortable at church in a way that they no longer want to go home when the service ends. They even wait for the afternoon service, and on Sunday they come to church.

On Wednesday, July 24, it was the second day of Diplio Makgana [a young girl] at our Learning Centre. We noticed that her brother insulted and spoke obscene language against her. He even tried to chase her from the Centre. We have begun to counsel Diplio and her brother.

We have seen a shift in the children. There is no more loitering; gang activity is decreasing. The local children are now focused on their schoolwork.

Since we started to give food and take care of the local children, they are more satisfied. They especially love Dumpling and Bean Soup Day on Thursdays.
We encountered an instance whereby one child feared being around other children. Since joining our programme, he has grown used to being with and playing around others.

Parents are happy and appreciate what we're doing here. We have started with a small number of children as we are just starting, but we are inviting others.
