Edward comes from James Town. His father was frequently
in and out of prison for theft and had no inclination to
stop thieving. He was a hardened drug addict and armed
robber. His father frequently used Edward to creep
through windows to steal items from properties for him.
One of Osmond's pastors, Pastor Reuben, Went to see
Osmond and to ask if he could do anything to help a little
boy called Edward as without help this little boy would
surely go to prison and lead a life of crime.
Naomi, Osmond's wife, heard this plea and was moved to tears. She discussed with Osmond how they might help and they decided that if they were to take care of Edward then it would be better if they also took care of one of his 10 brothers and sisters. So, it was decided that Osmond and Naomi would also look after Prosper. These two little boys moved in to the Home of Hope in 2006.
Edward and Prosper were sponsored by New Life Ghana to go school. They were both part of the first cohort of children to complete their education at Fayef International School in 2015. Prosper is continuing with his education at Senior High School and is doing very well. He will finish in July 2018. Edward also went to Senior High School but he is not gifted academically and prefers football and using his practical skills. He tried to continue his education at a football academy but although he enjoyed the football, he didn’t enjoy his studies. Osmond encouraged Edward to consider what he would really like to do. Edward asked Osmond if he could help him to learn a trade. Edward is currently learning how to make PVC windowby News and doors alongside Gideon. Gideon has been the caretaker at the Home of Hope for about six years - he himself having been sponsored by NLG and helped to learn his trade. As well as looking after the Home of Hope and the children before and after school and at weekends, he has now established himself as a local window maker.
