Noah is one of few children in our program who does have both a mother and a father. We have kept an eye on him since he was a baby because we knew his home situation was unstable. His father is an alcoholic who has a long history of abusive behavior toward Noah, his sister and his mother.
Eventually, in 2013, Noah’s father forced his mother out of the house and she left Noah alone to fend for himself. Noah’s father did not take any responsibility for him either. He would leave Noah alone without food or any other basic necessities while he was out drinking all day, not to return until very late in the evening. Since Noah was locked out of the house without food or water, he had to look for help elsewhere and he found it in a group of older street boys who were doing drugs and stealing.
In 2014 Noah was rescued by The Peace for Paul Foundation. He is now a happy student who loves music and dancing and is an avid soccer player as well. Noah attends a highly ranked primary boarding school and has big dreams to become a bank manager in the future. PFP makes it a priority for Noah to maintain a relationship with his extended family as he grows up. During school holidays, Noah travels back to Northern Uganda under the care of our Karamojong social worker (his uncle Emma!), to learn about and be a part of his culture. We have recently located Noah’s grandmother and a few of his aunties and cousins as well. He enjoys spending time with them during holidays and does his best to help them wherever he can.
