Simon is our Co-director and shares the same story as many of our program children. Being born and raised in a poor family, he cherishes the opportunity given to the children to better their future and become the people that God destined them to be. Each day presents an opportunity for him to go out and serve the community and share his testimony with those that had lost hope.
