Sharon Asio came to Awinjo House August 13, 2016. Sharon is the daughter of Victoria Nyaphono, who had married a man who was a witch doctor. Sharon’s mother did not know that the man was a witch doctor until he sacrificed one of Sharon’s siblings. Her mother also found out that the man was making preparations to sacrifice the rest of the family, so she escaped from him and moved to a local village.
Despite a very difficult childhood, Sharon has been extremely helpful, very nice to the staff and children, and even speaks great English. Sharon has a reputation for being filled with joy and always smiling. We are working to find out how much she learned in the village school she attended before Awinjo House, to determine which class she should be in now.
