''I don't use to receive emotional support from my aunty. She often calls me a financial burden.''

These were the words of a student who listened to me in the student empowerment talk in one of the schools.

I asked about her parents and she said they were dead. Her other siblings are in the village and that's where she was before her aunt brought her to the town.

She needed words of hope. I had to shift her attention from the complaints about her aunt to the positive side of life that she didn't seem to see.

• Going back to the village means you won't further your education. It is not an option.
• Your aunt enrolled you in a private school and not a government school. She has a good heart.
• She pays your school fees.
• You even have a phone to call me.

''I understand that you crave emotional support but instead of focusing on what your aunty has not done, pray that God will bless her more. She may be going through some financial challenges that is making her react. Appreciate all the good things she has done for you.''

Turning to a counsellor in this project is really tasking. What other advice would I have given?

The RIPPLE EFFECT of the School Empowerment/Book Donation project has brought up different stories from young minds desiring clarity.

Thanks to my team members.
