Before joining the PFP program, Chipa and her sister Sylvia had been abandoned by their parents. They stayed with a relative 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 came 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 and when not studying, she enjoys dancing and listening to music.
In the 4 years that the girls lived at The Peace for Paul home, their mother was able to work hard and turn her life around. Chipa’s mom has gained employment and in 2019, she welcomed her daughters back home. PFP continues to support Chipa with education and medical related expenses, but during school holidays she spends time with her family at their home. The PFP social worker makes weekly home visits to ensure Chipa’s safety and well being. Chipa loves spending time with her mom and is grateful for the love that surrounds her.
