“I was born in Mbikko, Uganda and I live with my mother, father and three siblings. My mother provides for the family by cooking the feet and head of cows to sell to others. This provides very little money for the whole family to live on but she is able to help us with food to eat. School is more difficult because school fees for good schools are expensive and the school that I went to was so bad. It is hard to learn when there are so few teachers and no books. I would like to study to be a doctor so that I can help other people and be so smart”.
Now a part of the PFP Juniors program, Michael attends a highly ranked primary school and has big dreams for his future. While PFP supports him with education and medical expenses, Michael continues to live with his parents who he loves very much. His mom and dad work hand in hand with PFP and are proud to play a role in supporting Michael in being able to attend school.
