Shepherd's Care
Sipete, eSwatini

DOB: February 17, 2005

Elementary Student

Phumi first came to Shepherd's Care in the fall of 2018 on a "temporary" basis. Male relatives were sexually abusing her, and she had no family to keep her safe. 

Now, five years later, we're all sooooo thankful her "temporary" status sees no end in site!  She has responded beautifully to the family environment at Shepherd's Care.  She has plenty to eat and no one bothering her, so we've watched her heal as fear is replaced with trust. She interacts with the other girls in a healthy fashion and has become so dear to everyone. 

Phumi struggles to learn, and at 15, she's much older than most of the seventh graders she's in class with.  But in January, she'll attend catering school where she'll learn to bake, cook, and be a waitress.  This will equip her to provide for herself as an adult.  

Meanwhile, she's happy to be safe and cared for with all her basic needs provided--and lots of love thrown in.  Her smile is so precious, and sponsors help put it there!
