It's great to see how the children change during their stay on Centre Nimba. When they come they feel inferior because they are disabled, are not accepted by the family and their environment, and they dare not express. But when they see how the older students with each other and interact with teachers
they begin to feel at home. Together with their peers, they feel at ease. And on Centre Nimba they find friends and get them the attention that they not get elsewhere.
In 2010 we received 12 new students. In our early days were the teachers at the mosque and the street children "Search". Now they ask if they themselves may follow a course. For young children is easier than for the elderly. Who often have a history of begging behind. Especially the boys are accustomed to street life and then it is hard every day to school and to adapt to the rules.
Before students are accepted, the training and everything that comes to be discussed. It takes courage to create an entirely new life and sometimes there is doubt. But Director Soumah convince them that it is better for their future education and vocational training to follow. Nimba center is their only chance.
During the past year, two students after a while no longer show up. They were too much accustomed to their free life. Hopefully they do not regret later.
