    Chipa’s Story

    Before joining the PFP program, Chipa and her sister Sylvia had been abandoned by their parents. They stayed with their grandmother who tried to offer support but the family had too many children to feed, and the girls were not made a priority. Chipa and Sylvia were in immediate danger of being left to survive alone on the streets. The Peace for Paul Foundation heard of the trouble these sisters faced and stepped in to help.

    In 2015, both Chipa and Sylvia were welcomed home to the safety and stability of The Peace for Paul family. Chipa now attends a highly ranked private boarding school. When not studying, she enjoys dancing and listening to music.

    In the four years that the girls lived at The Peace for Paul home, their mother was able to work hard and turn her life around. Their mother gained employment and in 2019 she welcomed her daughters back home. In 2020 the girls switched to live with their father during school holidays. They have grown close and are grateful for the time they’ve been able to spend with him. PFP continues to support Chipa with all education and medical related expenses. The PFP social worker makes weekly home visits to ensure Chipa’s safety and well being.
