In 2010 Malayaka House decided to bring to the house a group of 10 girls that were living in another orphanage home notorious for unspeakable abuse and neglect. We had not planned this and it happened because of the situation Robert saw when he got involved trying to help this other home.
For some time they had to share a small room and beds, but since the very first moment they adapted to the house, aunties and the rest of the kids incredible easily and happily. And they became a part of our family.
Mauricious is the older one of this group of girls. Since she arrived and probably because she is the older one, she is also the leader and takes care of the rest of the girls. She is the typical old sister, inside and outside the house. She leads the group of the girls with calmness and patience. She is intelligent and cool-headed.
She is responsible, mature, polite, gentle, sweet, well behaved and never has a problem with anyone. She has a glowing aura and she draws attention to herself as soon as she enters the room. She has a beautiful smile and likes to show it.
She is also an amazing and essential Rugby player in the Entebbe Sharks, where everyone listens to her without question. She has a lot to say and a lot to ask, and she does it whenever she feels she needs.
Mauricious wants to be a lawyer since she was little, and secretly the President of Uganda. She studies hard and knows how important is going to school and get good grades. In school she is very disciplined and faces her challenges. She loves to discover new areas in life and to ask curiously about it.
In her free time, Maurici loves arts. She likes painting and is talented and good at it. Sometimes we sell her paints at Pizza Night and she does not use that money to buy clothes or shoes as many teenagers would do. She goes to the Book shop and buys more paints or brushes.
We are so proud of her and feel lucky to have her with us.
