    Fabian’s Story

    Fabian was one of 6 children that his parents cared for and though they tried, they were unable to provide for their children’s most basic needs. None of them went to school and they often went hungry. When they fell sick, there was no way their parents could afford treatment for them.

    At the age of five Fabian’s parents sent him to live with his grandmother and cousin Lillian. Unfortunately, the grandmother was also struggling with poverty and was not able to provide for them either. Eventually their grandmother found an auntie of the children and left them with her in the slums of Masese. Things continued to get worse and they found themselves in an even less safe environment where their basic needs were not being met. In 2017, Fabian was welcomed into Peace for Paul along with his cousin Lillian.

    Fabian attends a highly ranked boarding school and dreams of becoming a doctor in the future. During school holidays, Fabian is able to reunite with his parents and grandmother in Moroto under the care and supervision of a PFP social worker. He loves learning about his tribal culture and spending time there. In his free time Fabian enjoys playing football (soccer), reading books and swimming.
