The ability to work
We must start from the basis that we come from two completely different cultures and what may seem good to us in one part of the world in another is crazy… but the best thing is to try to be empathetic and not judge, we cannot pretend to change customs or traditions.
Well, here the children are 100% workers, from a young age they work like the most. They work at home, wash their clothes, take care of their siblings, carry buckets of water, work in the fields… From Mama Kevina Hope Centre the main objective is for children to be independent in every way, that’s why this is one of the areas of work.
The children do everything in the center: they wash their clothes, cook, clean… everything together with a midwife but in this way they are being helped to be independent in the future.
