    Geoffrey’s Story

    Geoffrey’s father died when he was 2 years old and afterward Geoffrey was left with his mentally unwell mother and his cousins.  The Local Chairperson of the village they lived in reported that Geoffrey’s mother physically abused him and the other children and often chased them away from the hut they lived in. Home was never a safe place to be for Geoffrey and he was always living in fear. Finally, after many years of abuse, a neighbor took pity on Geoffrey and she rescued him. She provided what she could for close to a year, but ultimately she had too many burdens taking care of her own family. She could no longer care for him and had no choice but to send him back to his mother. This kind woman pleaded with The Peace for Paul Foundation to take Geoffrey in so he would have a chance at a better life. In 2017, he came to live at Love Home (the PFP youngest children’s home). Geoffrey now attends a highly ranked boarding school and is excelling in his studies.He hopes one day to become a pilot.  

    Through the efforts of the PFP team, Geoffreys’ aunt and uncle (both police officers) were located and in late 2018, he joined them at home with his cousins Simon Peter and Eric. PFP continues to support Geoffrey with education and medical related expenses, but during school holidays, he lives at home with his aunt and uncle, who love him very much. The PFP social worker continues to make home visits and to follow up to ensure his safety and well being.
