Dreams Can Come True: Tikaou "Kaki" Ouang


By Nancie Hoffman, Mission:Chad Director


How often have you heard it said that "one person can't make a difference"? Yet, your donations to Mission:Chad are changing the lives of the orphans at Village Altonodji, one by one, by providing them with food, clothing, healthcare, shelter , and an education. When the Village Altonodji opened its gates in 2007, one of the original orphans living there was Tikaou Ouang-kaki ("Kaki"). At age 13, Kaki was described as "a shy and quiet girl" who loved studying English and singing. When asked if she had any special needs, Kaki replied, "I have need of advice!"

When Mission:Chad board members visited Chad in 2013, they brought news to the graduating orphans

tthat they would have an opportunity to attend university hrough Mission:Chad's higher education scholarship program. Kaki graduated from the Village Altonodji that June with dreams of attending university to study law. In the summer of 2013, Kaki took and passed the BAC exam and went on to study at the University of Moundou with the financial support of our Mission:Chad donors. After over a year of study, Kaki has now passed the exam that is required for entry into Law school! She will soon be transferring to the University of N'Djamena that is in the capital city about 300 miles away from Moundou to study law. Because of you, Kaki may soon be in a position not to get advice, as she once requested, but to give it — as a lawyer! Kaki's desire is to defend those who are unable to defend themselves.

In a country where literacy remains at only 35.4% of the population, and only 25% of women are able to read and write, Kaki is a bright light for her generation and for the orphans at Village Altonodji who can see that through hard work and the sacrificial gifts of their friends in America, their dreams can come true, too. Please pray for Kaki's continued success in her studies, and for God's continued blessing on this ministry of Mission:Chad.
