If we have no peace it is because we have forgotten that we belong to one another. – Mother Theresa
At Chikumbuso there is a young man who understands what Mother Theresa means when she says, “we belong to each other“.
Quiet acts of kindness flow frequently from him.
Akim is in grade six this year and for the past two years at Chikumbuso he has been modeling this behavior.
He is helpful everywhere; in the garden and in the school kitchen helping to feed his fellow students.
On weekends he comes to ask Trudy how he can help keep the school yard clean.
When John, our volunteer, is working he helps.
Akim’s family lives in poverty but they have taught him the value of community. His family is happy that he is at Chikumbuso, making good choices.
