No one at the children’s home paid much attention to Rahim*. He never spoke and gave no indication that he understood what was going on around him. But one of our staff members noticed Rahim and thought he could do more. She started sitting with Rahim and saying simple words like “bread” and “food,” encouraging him to repeat them.
Soon Rahim began to speak those words. And it was like something opened up inside him. He began to respond to comments and requests from others. Our staff helped open the world for this boy!
Our Project Restore seeks to restore hope and provide opportunities and a future for children at risk.
