    Priscilla’s Story

    “I live with my mom and dad and eight siblings. My dad is a security officer from one of the local schools in Mbiko and my mom is a housewife but sometimes washes clothes for people to get some money to feed us. My dad works hard day and night but the income is too small to cover school fees and all other necessities like food, medicine and rent for our big family.  This has forced all my siblings to not attend school.  Only I am now in school out of the eight children but my future is not yet bright since there is no hope of going beyond my primary level studies.  I am the sixth child and my oldest sister Phoebe was married after she became pregnant.  I think that all of this happened to her because she was not in school and did not have an education.  I want to get an education so I can get a job and help my family and others someday”.

    Now a part of the PFP Juniors program, Priscilla attends a highly ranked primary school and has big dreams to become a doctor one day.  While PFP supports her with education and medical expenses, Priscilla continues to live with her parents who she loves very much. Her mom and dad work hand in hand with PFP and are proud to play a role in supporting Priscilla in being able to attend school.
