The blessing of Tante Suus.....

 This are some of our youth! We know them for many years, they have all lived in Amecet and are now outside, living with their relatives, pursuing their studies, working at their future. We are still able to support them, because of our Tante Suus fund. Tante Suus was an old Dutch lady, who passed away, she had no children but was always interested in Amecet. We, as Amecet, received her heritage, to help the children with their studies, it became the Tante (auntie) Suus fund. All these youth, you see on this picture, benefit from this fund. Elias, (on this picture at the far back) is our social worker who follows them up, checks with them when they are in their boarding schools and keep in touch with their families.
This year are four of them graduating from S4! This week they finished and they went to their relatives. Issa and Francis went home on Thursday and I just picked Mary and Naome from their boarding school. On the picture below you can see them saying goodbye to their friends.
They spend four years in the boarding school. The results of their exams are not out before January, then we have to see what is coming next......
Three others, Catherine, Christoper and Anthony, are graduating from a Life skill course in tailoring and they will be able to earn themselves a living. 
I am so proud of them, I always have to think back, how they came into Amecet, and then to see them now, God has been so good to us! And we are thankful for the Tante Suus fund, it enables the children to work on their future! I wish that Tante Suus would know how much of a blessing she is to so many children!
