being at Kasisi has changed my life in a positive way. Many are
the times when people experience a loss in a family such as a
death of a parent. People think thatís the end of the world but
thatís not really the case.
was introduced to this huge family with my twin brother when I
was a month old, after the death of my parents. Kasisi
Childrenís Home has being my home since my childhood.
My being at Kasisi has really changed my life from the time I
was young to where I am now.
Here are some of the positive things that have contributed to my
change of life here in Kasisi; education, love, respect and
I have managed to achieve a
bright future. From Grade One to college with no difficulties.
Secondly, I would not worry about who would pay for my school
fees knowing Sr Mariola has always been there to help me, unlike
other kids outside there. In general I have received the best
education with the help of Sr Mariola and God.
So if it wasnít for my being here at Kasisi who knows where I
would be by now. I am who I am today because of Sr Mariola: I
completed my college and I am a qualified nurse now.
Love, I have experienced the greatest love ever here at Kasisi,
the love of having friends, sisters, mummies and brothers.
I have learnt the ways of how love is shown such as by giving,
receiving, playing and respecting one another. Kasisi
Childrenís Home is a home where we believe in giving. On
different special days such as Christmas we give/receive
Christmas gifts, hence sharing is one way of showing love. And
Kasisi has taught me how to show love.
Respect, is something that has to be shown to young ones and
elders despite of the age difference. I have learnt to respect
people regardless of their background, religion, race, tribe,
social status etc.
I believe everyone deserves respect and I have learnt this
through my being here.
Family, by definition people say a family is a group of people
related by blood, marriage, law or custom. But I choose to say a
family is a group of people you have stayed with or been living
with from the time you were young to where you are regardless of
blood, marriage relation. For me Kasisi Childrenís Home has been
my home from the time I was young to where I am now, and the
people I have stayed with (brothers, sisters, mummies) I
consider them as my family. They have taught me many things that
I didnít know.
A Word of Advice
I would like to urge young people out there, those that think if
you experience a loss in your family, especially the death of
parents, that it is not the end of the world. I simply say that
it is not!! God has a way for you. Just believe in him and trust
in him since there is nothing impossible with God.
I really thank Sr Mariola and the sisters for taking good care
of me and teaching me good values with this I say ďGod bless
them and always protect them in whatever they do. AMENĒ.
