The success story of Mary

There are several cases in which our project shows how successful our work is, especially stories about how certain beneficiaries progressed in their education and career. In the following article, we want to tell the story of Mary Dei-Nsiah who has been a ROHC-beneficiary since 2006 and had to deal with challenges and obstacle to be where she  is now. The project supported her during her school times and influenced and has influenced her personal and working career very positively.

Mary Dei-Nsiah was 13 years old when she was found by a woman called Auntie Mary at the market of Ashaiman selling pure water. The woman was impressed by the way Mary Dei-Nsiah handled her work and so the women went to her and asked her a couple of questions and told Mary Dei-Nsiah she will support her in the future. Auntie Mary came together with Bro Bonney to Mary´s grandmother´s home in order to give Mary Dei-Nsiah an offer to come to ROHC and become a part of our project.

Mary Dei-Nsiah spent 1 year in FCP attending the pre-classes before she was enrolled into class 3 at  the Providence Primary School. She finished her secondary education in the year 2015 graduating from the Ningo Senior High School.

Mary´s plan was to go to university however her grades were not good enough so she came up with the idea to work in a beauty and cosmetic business. Ever since, Mary has attended Super Plus Beauty Academy in Ashaiman which is a beauty and cosmetic school where she learns in different categories like beauty therapy, make up and nail technique.

In December 2018, Mary graduated from the Super Plus Beauty Academy has started with her internship with a beauty saloon in Tema.

The example of Mary Dei-Nsiah shows the chances of being part of our project and a role model for all current beneficiaries. We are very glad that she is part of our family and wish her all the best for her health, career and personal life.

Enrollment of 8 beneficiaries into Basic School

Another successful year has come to an end, were 8 beneficiaries have transited from the street life and its conditions to school life.

Last year, 2017 these children were on the streets not schooling. They have successfully passed through the 1-year Pre-School Classes at our FCP Centre and have exhibited a strong will, passion and dedication for a brighter future through education.

Traphina, Elizabeth, Doris, Peace, John, David and Frank have all been admitted to the St Peter Methodist School in Ashaiman. Kofi (8 years) has also been admitted to Mawuvio Outreach Programme in Ayikuma for his basic education. Based on their academic level, they have all been admitted into various classes at the primary level.

Our monitoring system ensures that at all times, our beneficiaries are making the best out of the opportunity presented to them in terms of their academic, social and moral development.

May the school be a place for them were they are happy and motivated to learn new skills were they can gain lots of experience for their future development.

Step by Step, Day by Day, a Journey of HOPE Begins

We are proud to announce an addition of new children from the streets after 5 months of scanning hot spots within our City Centres. Their parents/guardians have been successfully located and taken out of the streets to their various homes.

The identified youngsters after signing a mutual contract with ROHC will be enrolled into Pre-School classes to guide them gradually into school life, social life and reintegration back into society and their family.

The new beneficiaries come from unique and different backgrounds. The influences of the street life are still present but it is wonderful that they are highly motivated to learn new things and unlearn negative street attitudes.
