Myth: Children are victims
(Child living in poverty)
Truth: NO! They’re the doctors, teachers, and leaders of tomorrow.

Stories of Transformation
As an orphan, Gertrude had no hope of education. IN Uganda’s child assistance program enabled her to go to school at age 10, where she received nutritious meals, medication, life skills training, and career guidance. After 14 years of loving support and mentorship from IN, Gertrude graduated with a bachelor’s degree of Education in Economics from Kyambogo University and is now employed as a teacher at a prestigious secondary school in Uganda.
Samuel's family lived from hand to mouth for many years, and the constant struggle to survive meant they couldn't afford to send him to school. Then he received assistance to attend IN's Amrahia Community School, and today he's training to be a doctor at the University of Ghana Medical school. He also gives back to the school by inspiring other young children with his story of hope.
Baby Doria (Kenya)
Doria was abandoned at birth, dumped into the bottom of a latrine in Kawangware slum by her teenaged mother. When they heard Doria crying, our team broke through the stone, pulled her out, and rushed her to hospital, where she stayed for three months with an infection she got after ingesting feces. Today, she's happy and healthy!
Hari is 26 years old and a mother of one child. Her husband suffers from hemophilia, which led to the amputation of his right leg. This has made it very difficult for him to find work. Understanding that she needed to take action, Hari enrolled in the sewing program at the Lydia Vocational Training Centre. Her goal is to start a tailoring business when she graduates that generates income to support her family and give her child a good education and future.
