One Step at a Time

Kelly did not know her father very well. He was hardly present in her life due to his history of multiple incarcerations. Despite his frequent absences, Kelly felt closest to him. Hence, when he was re-arrested again, it was a very big blow to her. She was so hurt that she refused to visit him in prison.

Struggling with the pain, Kelly suddenly decided to quit school. Kelly's mother was at a loss and decided to turn to The Salvation Army Prison Support Services - Kids In Play for help.

To understand Kelly's struggles, we organised several activities and sharing sessions to draw her out of her shell. We also focused on improving the relationship between Kelly and her mother and arranged for a volunteer to tutor her in Mathematics, which was her weakest subject.

A few months later, with our support, Kelly managed to find the strength and confidence to return to school. Her mother recounted that she almost burst into tears upon hearing the good news. Recently, Kelly took another step forward and wrote her first letter to her father, expressing her love to him.

There are many other children like Kelly who are in similar situations. Just as Kelly has taken one brave step after another, we appeal to you to take a step forward towards giving our beneficiaries hope for a better tomorrow.

To protect the identity of our beneficiary, the name has been changed and a volunteer model was used in the photograph.
