Grade: Primary, Level 2
Mercy Nyachwo came to Awinjo House on August 12, 2014. Her father died around 2008, and her mother has had many husbands, drinks heavily, and does not consistently care for all of her children. Mercy and her siblings were having to stay with a poor grandmother and grandfather who both drink, so food and education took second place to their lifestyle. She could not speak English when she first came, but has caught on quickly and went from nursery to first grade in just a few months.
Mercy is very shy with grown ups, but plays well with the other children at Awinjo. She has had some behavioral issues and some struggles with keeping her grades up to an acceptable level, but we’re convinced that through much prayer, lots of love, and consistent parenting Mercy will be able to grow into a beautiful young woman.
