Joweria Namutesi


    Joweria’s Story

    Joweria’s father left her when she was an infant and her mother has not seen or heard from him since. Her mother is a tomato vendor and owns a small kiosk for tomatoes and other vegetables. She does what she can to support the family of four children but money is always short and school fees are out of reach. 

    Now a part of the PFP Juniors program, Joweria attends a highly ranked primary school and has big dreams to become a nurse someday. While PFP supports her with education and medical expenses, Joweria continues to live with her mother and siblings, who she loves very much. Her mother works hand in hand with PFP and is proud to play a role in supporting Joweria in being able to attend school regularly.
