    Kowa’s Story

    Kowa is one of four children and grew up in Mbiko. After Kowa’s father passed, his mother struggled to make ends meet and left her children for some months. Kowa became responsible for his three siblings during that time. The local government forwarded the case to PFP and PFP immediately stepped in to assist the family. PFP cleared the family’s rent debt and offered to send Kowa and his siblings to school.

    Kowa’s mother lives with him and his siblings again and has started a new business selling vegetables and silver fish with PFP’s help. Kowa attends a highly ranked secondary school and hopes to become an engineer someday. His mother is proud to now work hand in hand with PFP and play a role in supporting Kowa to be able to attend school.
