At just the age of 6, young Nadia lost both of her parents…

Her uncle, Solomon, did his best with meager resources to provide for her basic needs and schooling. Solomon’s support enabled Nadia to graduate from secondary school in June, 2017.

In November 2018, at 18 years old, Nadia heard about World Renew’s Adolescent Health and Rights project in Kwata community. She enrolled in the program and went through peer learning sessions, as well as economic empowerment training

These sessions have helped both Nadia’s spiritual and personal growth, inspiring her to grow a business of cake-making. She testifies that she feels encouraged to continue to trust God to grow her business. 

Nadia plans to save money through her business and further her education to eventually become a nurse. Nadia concludes,

“I am now part of a company of rightly determined young girls and I have a God-fearing mentor who advises me.”  For Nadia this brings great hope: “I have found the peer group sessions very helpful and timely and are shaping my life for [the] better. I am better prepared to make informed decisions about my physical and spiritual life.”

Thanks to you, Nadia’s faith and dreams keep growing daily.
