Shahid was born paralysed from birth unable to use his legs. From a poor urban area in South Asia his family cannot afford a wheelchair for him. Shahid felt he never had a future with no hope of meaningful employment. A Computer KidsHub run in his neighbourhood changed all that. “Suddenly he saw a future for himself working in IT – he had hope!” enthused his KidsHub leader. The boy attended a series of KidsHub sessions on the basics of computing. For him and the many who attended they had never touched a laptop before. The leader was excited that the computer sessions also gave them an opportunity to disciple these children, as they were not from Christian backgrounds. He is excited to follow up the young boy and see his computing skills built upon and his friendship with Jesus too.
