Girl’s boarding school in Calulo

The reality is for many girls and young women in Calulo often very hard and without any perspective in the future. Many of them even don’t have a chance to go to school or to attend any other training course.

Therefore, many of them are yet in their childhood the victim of violence, sexual abuse, forced marriage and youth pregnancy – they become mothers with 15 years!
In a case of a death of both parents, the girls must take care of their siblings. That’s also a main reason they abandon the school.

This situation was a great encouragement for the Don Bosco sisters in Calulo to found the girl’s boarding school.

In the boarding school, sisters are offering to the girls:
• to visit the kindergarten
• to visit the school till the 12th grade
• to attend the training courses, e.g. computer training course
• accommodation, food and clothes
• All that is needed for a decent life.

The girls in the boarding school learn to cook, to do the housework, to sew etc., in fact they learn everything that will make their lives easier and decent in the world outside.

Now, there are 15 girls living in the boarding school. They are form 9 to 20 years old. All are form the villages where schooling was not possible and most of them are coming from big families or are orphans.

The boarding school in Calulo offers them a way to a decent life and fills them with hope that a better future is also waiting for them.
