Allan’s Story

    I was born in 1998 in a village called Budoma. I have one younger brother, Arthur. We had another brother and sister but they both died of illness when I was young. My father is a good man but he would abuse alcohol so much. When he would take alcohol, he could beat my mother and us. It was not a good time and my mother would fight with my father so much. Then, in 2007 my mother left my father and her sons in the village.

    Sometime after this, I was sent to my uncle’s place to have a better chance at life.  My uncle has a large family and some of his children are in senior level, so school fees were hard to come by.  Sometimes I could study and other times I could not. It was still not a good time as I wanted to go to school so much.

     In 2011, I was so lucky to have an opportunity to study with Peace for Paul. Now, I am in Secondary school and have all the things that I could want. My school is so good and my brother and I are so happy with our life together.
