Tapiwa’s Story

Tapiwa is a 4-year-old girl who attends the preschool run by Calvary church, serving 45 children before COVID-19 forced its closure. She lives with six siblings and a single mother in a one-room unfinished house.

Tapiwa and two of her brothers are sponsored through Hope Story, enabling them to attend school and receive food packs. Already, Tapiwa has impressed the teachers with a natural aptitude for learning. “She is one of the best students we have,” shared one of the teachers, “and will have a bright future if she remains in school.” It is a future of hope enabled by your generosity.

Reverend Imasiku, of LCC Church (our third church partner), also had much to say in appreciation. “We are grateful for the support from Hope Story – it has lightened the burden of the congregation as many families are looking to the church for help,” he shared.

All three of our church partners have continued to distribute food baskets to struggling families in their community, as well as the families of children in our sponsorship program.
