Before joining the PFP program, Sylvia and her sister Chipa had been abandoned by their parents. They stayed with a relative who tried to offer support but the family had too many children to feed, and Sylvia and the girls were not made a priority. Sylvia and Chipa were in immediate danger of being left to survive alone on the streets. The Peace for Paul Foundation heard of the trouble these sisters faced and came to help.
In 2015, both Sylvia and Chipa were welcomed home to the safety and stability of The Peace for Paul family. Sylvia now attends a highly ranked private boarding school and when not studying, she enjoys playing netball and dancing.
In the 4 years that the girls lived at The Peace for Paul home, their mother was able to work hard and turn her life around. Sylvia’s mom has gained employment and in 2019, she welcomed both Sylvia and Chipa back home. PFP continues to support Sylvia with education and medical related expenses, but during school holidays she spends time with her family at their home. The PFP social worker makes weekly home visits to ensure Sylvia’s safety and well being. Sylvia loves spending time with her mom and is grateful for the love that surrounds her.
