Josephine was orphaned when she was two-years-old. Her father passed away when she was one and her mother a year later. Josephine and her younger brother, Elvis, were sent to live with their elderly grandmother (Jaja). Thankfully the family lived close to the PFP home and we eventually became aware of their situation. Josephine and Elvis were enrolled in our Junior program where they received educational assistance, but continued to live with their grandmother. Jaja was a kind woman and loved the children, but she was often ill and eventually passed away too. Josephine and Elvis were then welcomed in to our main program for they would have a home and family to rely.
Over time, the PFP social work team was able to find an auntie who was happy to learn her niece and nephew were alive. While the dynamic duo continue to be part of the PFP program, the aunt welcomes the children in to her home on school holidays so they can get to know one another and build family ties.
Josephine attends a highly ranked senior level boarding school and is doing well in her studies. When not studying, she enjoys listening to music and hanging out with her friends. At this point, Josephine aspires to be a journalist and we look forward to helping her make that dream a reality.
