Saidi is 8 years old and is currently in top class. Coming from a very poor family, his parents did not really see the value in having an education. Because of this Saidi did not have access to education at the required age.
Early this year, Saidi had a chance to join Noah’s Ark Day Care Centre. This was after a member of staff from the charity found him and his sister roaming the streets during school days. An assessment on their background was carried out and this gave Saidi an opportunity to join the centre.
At the time Saidi was malnourished and infected with jiggers in his fingers, feet and other parts of his body. Since then he is being well looked after by staff and at the moment the jiggers are healing. He is getting plenty of healthy food which has also improved his health.
Saidi now has a reason to smile
With no hope of an education early on in life, Saidi now has a reason to smile. Through the support of The Nasio Trust, not only does Saidi interact with other children he has access to education, a good feeding programme, clothing and medication. Though he missed out to education in baby and middle class, Saidi is working extremely hard and trying his level best to catch up with other children in his class. Since his enrollment his main focus has been his education.
Saidi has always been thankful to anyone who gives him and his family support. In June 2015 his Sponsors visited him and his family and bought them bedding and utensils, which Saidi and his family didn’t expect. He couldn’t have thanked them more.
Saidi is working very hard and has dreams and ambitions to become a Builder, so as one day he can construct houses for people who don’t have shelter.
