Our Non-Resident Children

Non-Resident Kids

Our non-resident children still have one or two parents or relatives and return home to them to sleep at night. Some of them spend all day on our base, while we see others less often. We pay for their tuition, medical expenses, some meals, and whatever other basic needs need to covered.

Fousseni has put on weight since joining us, and is slowly starting to accept that somebody really cares about him.

Fousseni hasn't known anything but beatings all his life - by his father, by his Muslim teacher, and by his boss. When his father not only beat him up but also stopped giving him any more food, he ran away. He spent about one year on the street, before he first came to our weekly program. The Lord highlighted him to me to take him in.

He has since reconciled with his father and moved back in with him where he gets a chance to live out his faith daily in his Muslim environment. We get to see Fousseni daily as he goes to school with our kids and spends his lunch break on our base.

Nationality: Mali (Fulani)

School: 7th grade
Sponsor: Siegfried & Andrea

Karim was probably born in the Sikasso region in the south of Mali around 1995, and lived with his parents while he was small. At the age of 7 his father sent him away to another town to go to a Quranic school; Karim stayed with the mayor there. After 5 years of the Muslim school, he had enough, and his father let him return to his home. However, he had divorced his mother in the meantime.

At the age of 12 Karim started first grade in a regular school, and finished it. He had a hard time with his father's other wife, though, and decided to run away. That's how he arrived at the bus station in Bamako where he got into drugs and sex, but did not resort to stealing. After two months on the street Florentin (now also one of our children) invited him to our center. When we opened our base for the kids to sleep there in Sep 2008, Karim was among the kids of that first night. During the following two years he grew in the Lord, was baptized, and learned to read. When we took him in, he was one of the most faithful street children to sleep on our base, having logged over 500 nights. He is now a top student in school and has grown up to be a very gifted young man.

Jeremie93AbdoulayeDiarraJérémie Diarra - This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Age: 20
Birthday: (11 December) 1996
Nationality: Mali (Bambara)
Moved in: Dec 2008
School: 11th grade
Sponsor: Sisi

Jérémie was born as Abdoulaye in Bougouni, a few hours south of Bamako. His Mom dies early, and his Dad remarries a woman Jérémie does not get along with. This woman has twins twice, being challenged with 4 little kids.

The family moves to the capital, where things don't get better. Because of the family situation, Jérémie keeps running away. After his second year at school, he spends the summer with his grandfather but doesn't like it there either. Back in Bamako for his third year in school, he starts moving around, living with different friends of the family, but it never works out. During the summer holiday he finally runs away all the way, and spends one month on the street before he first comes to our place (28 Oct 2008). His family looks for him everywhere, with the intention of putting him into children's prison. In December we take in Jérémie, after he's baptized and shows a desire to start a new life with us, and his family gives their permission. He has grown up to be an amazing young man who now goes to High School.

After we took in André's brother Florentin, we were told about André who was in a real bad situation. His Mom could not take care of him and had given him to some people who took advantage of him and would not let him go to school or give him enough food. His Mom asked us to take him in, and so we did in the summer of 2013. André is a smart and fine young man who loves Jesus and is a good student at High School.
