    Yasin’s Story

    Yasin was born to a very young teenage couple and though his mother loved him very much, his father had no intention of becoming a father at his young age. Yasin lived with his young, though very loving mother from birth until 6 years old, when she tragically died. This left Yasin with no one but his father to rely on. Yasin’s father was unsafe and unwelcoming. He forced Yasin to work instead of going to school. After two years Yasin ran away and began living in the streets with other children.

    In May of 2021, Yasin was one of six children who were found living on the streets of Jinja and who volunteered to play a role in the PFP video filming project. As it soon became clear that Yasin had a desire to return to school, PFP helped to make that a reality. Yasin joined PFP’s Main Program and now attends a wonderful boarding school. During school holidays he resides at PFP’s Hope Home while PFP’s social workers search for a safe and loving family member that he may be reunited with. Should we not be able to find a safe place for him, Yasin will always have a home with us. He now looks toward his future with hope. In his free time, Yasin enjoys playing football (soccer), swimming and reading novels.
