Many years ago a beautiful
journey started for me after thinking there was nothing left for
me in life. I was brought to Kasisi Children’s Home by a
catholic priest by the name of Peter Henriot.
Kasisi really turned my life
around and moulded me to whom I am now by the help of Sr Mariola
who is the sister-in-charge of Kasisi Children’s Home and other
sisters who helped us grow to where I am today.
Being at Kasisi has changed my
life both spiritually and physically. Being at Kasisi has helped
me know God and be closer to God all because the sisters taught
us a lot about God and made me understand that God has his own
ways of doing things.
Kasisi changed me from being
nothing to somebody today. I have been given all the education
from Sr Mariola and I am very grateful for that, without me
being at Kasisi right now only God knows where I would be by
I have been shown the love and
care from Sr Mariola and all the sisters here at Kasisi. I have
been taught how to respect people regardless of their age,
status and so many other things. I have been taught how to
share, how to help those in need just by looking at what Sr
Mariola and the other sisters do for us and other people and
because of this, Kasisi has changed my attitudes towards things.
I have grown to give respect to
people. I have learnt to share and to show love to everybody
around me. I have learned to be kind to others and day by day I
look back and thank God for allowing Sr Mariola to take care of
I have learned to think
positively about the future, about people and about things, all
because Sr Mariola would tell us to try and look at the positive
things about people, things and not overlook at the negatives
and for this, my way of thinking has really changed a lot,
I learnt to see good in so many
things and just the thought of positive thinking is the best
thought ever and therefore I give big ‘thank you’ to Sr Mariola
who contributed much to my ways of thinking.
Kasisi has changed my heart,
from having a small heart to a big heart, sometimes I look at Sr
Mariola receive and welcome children almost every time and at
the same time welcome visitors. Just from seeing what Sr Mariola
does I have been challenged to have an open heart to anyone and
to be welcoming to people.
I have learnt how to treat
other equally because I have seen through many in Kasisi
Children’s Home, Sr Mariola and the sisters, treat each and
every one of us equally despite the fact that we come from
different backgrounds and places, we received the same love,
care, kindness from Sr Mariola and the sisters including the
mummies who helped in taking care of us.
There is no more beautiful
place as Kasisi Children’s Home where there is love, care,
comfort, sharing, receiving, and always giving and for this I
say ‘thank you’ to Sr Mariola, the sisters and the mummies who
contributed to my change up to here today.
And not forgetting to thank God
for blessing me with a beautiful family at Kasisi Children’s
