Special interest have been taken to how Bethesda is dealing with responsibility and expectations. Also I´ve been interested in which vital change the boy have gone through during the rehabilitation? I´ve got the information from staff, parents and former street boys through interviews done in Kenya.

That forced Bethesda to clearly talk about responsibility to make the parents understand their part in the rehabilitation and prepare them for reunification of their son. (Less)
