General info about the chilcren
The children range in age from Four to 21-years-old. They all reside in the orphanage, where they attend the Delta School and the Miracle School and Missahoe through the sponsorship of volunteers.
They learn to be responsible and value education from early childhood with the help of volunteers and an incredibly hardworking mother supervising the home.
Each day they are expected to do their school homework and their chores before being able to play with their brothers and sisters. Through Mama Esi’s dedication and love for the children she has created a home that truly feels like a family. The children feel that they have 17 brothers and sisters. They eat, work, study, and play together. There is playful teasing and loving care for one another. This infuses them with the sense of family that they desperately need as most of the children were orphaned by the death of their parents.
The kids are steered away from lives controlled by anger and revenge and taught to foster a sense of love and commitment within themselves. The children grow into this loving commitment while learning the values of education and respect and the importance of being humble and tolerant towards each other. The children are truly amazing kids filled with joy and love even after all that they have been through.
