In the words of one of the ladies, who runs a small grocery not far from our Amasiko premises: ‘You people are definitely doing very good work with the maibobos (a term commonly used to refer to street children). Of late, I have noticed that at least 10 of the street children under your care have transformed for the better. They are much better behaved than they used to be before your intervention. Though they used to be a nuisance to the community around, they look healthier and well fed; no longer sniff glue; neither do they steal from us as they used to do in the past. We wonder what magic you’ve applied to these children some of us had given up on! This has gradually changed the negative attitudes most of us had regarding street children in our midst. We used to regard them as pests and good-for-nothing.’
Well done to everyone at Amasiko, we are so proud of you!
