Saving Children & Giving Them a Future


It was in January 2021 that I started a daycare in my house after I saw many children in my neighborhood were very malnourished and their parents were unable to provide them with three meals a day.

I did not have much or a big house to keep these children.

I decided to be receiving them from their parent’s house from 7:30 am to 3 pm and even to sometimes extend staying with them up to 6 pm.
