Kasisi Children’s Home is the best bureau de change in the world. Every day here we exchange sadness, tears and pain for smiles, joy and a sense of security.
Eliza and Taonga are in the fifth grade of primary school. When Eliza first came to Kasisi, she was a very reserved, timid little girl. She needed a long time before she started trusting her sisters and telling them about herself. When she finally began to feel safe, it turned out that she had a lot of talents, which we have been trying to develop and nurture ever since. Today Eliza is an independent and ambitious student. She plays the keyboard brilliantly, loves singing and dancing, and during her performances she amazes us with her confidence and talent.
Taonga came to Kasisi as a second-grader. For her the family home was not what by definition it was supposed to be. It lacked love, which was displaced by shouting, violence and a lot of pain. Like Eliza, she is a shining example of how Kasisi heals wounds, builds trust and self-confidence. Today Taonga really knows what she wants.
For both girls, Kasisi has changed everything in their lives. It shows that helping others is not about pity, but about meeting them and about the happiness that stems from the fact that by giving, we really change someone else’s world. We can share what we have with the children from Kasisi, and they will share themselves with us. Thanks to this exchange, every day Kasisi becomes a place brimming with life and joy. Although the children of Kasisi have experienced many hardships in their lives, they radiate such joy that everyone who comes here thinks of nothing else but when they will be able to return.
By inviting you to join our Adoptions from the Heart project, we encourage you to join a family that can turn every sorrow into a smile and hope. If you haven’t already done so, visit our website, meet our children and, as adoptive parents, help us change the most convoluted stories in these children’s lives.
Eva and James are our medical students – talented, hardworking and grateful for every little support. They know that thanks to you they have been given a life opportunity. Now they can lead their lives as they dreamed of.
Today we ask you to join the fundraiser for the next semester of their studies. Curriculum – not funding – should be the only thing for our children to worry about. Let’s make sure they have a place in the medical world!
