Kafero Shadrack Tamale


    Kafero’s Story

    Kafero’s parents died and he was left an orphan when he was just 2 years old. An uncle took him in, but he is an elderly man with a disability that prevented him from obtaining employment. Kafero worked hard to help his uncle earn a small income by quarrying rocks or cleaning houses for neighbors. Before joining the PFP program, Kafero had never attended school and slept on the floor of a mud hut with his uncle. He had no bedding and when it would rain, he was often soaked through. Kafero often went days without food and had no hope of attending school. His uncle was worried that the next step for Kafero would be street life and he begged for help from The Peace for Paul Foundation. Kafero was brought home to The Peace for Paul Foundation family in August 2017. He joined his sister Viola, who has been a part of the PFP family since 2015. Kafero now attends a highly ranked private boarding school and is excelling in all of his classes. When not studying, he also enjoys playing sports, doing puzzles and playing with his friends. 

    In 2018, Kafero’s eldest sister came forward after obtaining a job and reported that she wanted to offer a home and family to Kafero and his sister Viola.  PFP continues to support Kafero with education and medical related expenses, but during school holidays he lives at home with his elder sister, who loves him very much. The PFP social worker continues to make home visits and to follow up to ensure his safety and well being. Kafero enjoys spending time with his family and is grateful for all of the love that surrounds him.
