Happy

Her name is perfect; she smiles constantly, and her gentle laughter brings joy to everyone. Her enthusiasm is contagious.  Happy acquired education level certificates from the Global Montessori Institute and the Institute of Business, Entrepreneurship, and Social Pedagogical Studies. She likes working at Enyorata because she loves kids and wants to communicate with them and give them a strong foundation with learning and their behavior . The children adore Happy , and she quickly impressed her colleagues with her beautiful singing voice and friendly disposition. Happy loves going to church to pray and sing. She has a brother and sister-in-law.

Sarah

Upon graduation, Sarah talked with Vincent about a job. She has been with Enyorata for a couple of years. Sarah lives at the orphanage and works pretty much non-stop. Up early with the children to help them get ready for their day, she hand washes their clothes, keeps the inside clean, helps at mealtimes, and interacts with the children in The Montessori Room and outside, all with a smile on her face. Sarah is a bundle of energy and full of love for the children.

Ruth
