    Betty’s Story

    “I live with a husband and wife who I call my father and mother since my biological parents abandoned me.  The man I call father rescued me from the village where I was left since my parents never bothered to care for me or take me to school.  My dad would drink too much and beat my mother. The man I now call father rescued me and brought me to Jinja to babysit his children.  Then my new mother decided to take me to a local school where I study at times but am still chased away because they cannot pay for the school fees.  I dream of going to school and getting an education so I can become a lawyer someday.  Then I can have money to help others and also help defend people in the courts”.

    Now a part of the PFP Juniors program, Betty attends a highly ranked primary school and has big dreams for her future.  While PFP supports her with education and medical expenses, Betty continues to live with her adoptive 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 Betty in being able to attend school.
