“I Knew I Could Be Happy Too”

Meet Joseph! When Joseph first came to the Shangilia Children’s Home, he was nervous; however, Joseph stated, “I became less nervous after seeing other children and how happy they were at Shangilia. I knew that if they were happy, I would one day be happy too.”

Because of the parental love and support Joseph receives at Shangilia, he no longer a shy, nervous child. Instead, he is positive, boisterous, and extremely outgoing. Joseph explained, “Everyday when I wake up, I thank God for giving me another day. I thank Him because I am here.”
