    Melissa’s Story

    “My mom and dad are uneducated and they don’t have permanent jobs.  My dad tries to do any work he can find but we often go for a long time without money. I go to school if there is some money for fees but when I can’t pay school fees, they chase me away from school and I can’t go back.  I would like to keep studying and not get chased away because we don’t have money. If I can study, I want to be a nurse someday because they are so smart”.

    Now a part of the PFP Juniors program, Karen attends a highly ranked primary school and has big dreams to become a nurse someday.  While PFP supports her with education and medical expenses, Karen continues to live with her parents, who she loves very much. Her mother and father work hand in hand with PFP and are proud to play a role in supporting Karen in being able to go to school.
