Kafero Shadrack Tamale


    Kafero’s Story

    Kafero’s father has a severe disability and both parents have limited ability to work and provide for their family. As a young boy, Kafero worked hard to help earn a small income by quarrying rocks and cleaning houses for neighbors. He slept on the floor of a mud hut with 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 father worried that the next step for Kafero would be street life and begged Peace for Paul to help his son attend school. Kafero joined the PFP family in August 2017.

    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 steady job and reported that she wanted to offer a home and family to Kafero. Peace for Paul 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.
