    Peace’s Story

    Prior to joining the PFP family, Peace lived together with her siblings Kiiza and Ketra in a slum not far from the Peace for Paul homes. Both parents of the children suffer from serious mental illness, are unemployed and have been unable to care for their children. At such young ages, Ketra, Peace and Kiiza were left unattended and forced to fend for themselves and find food by any means possible.

    Now, Peace lives with her siblings in the PFP homes. They all attend highly ranked boarding schools. The sisters attend school and study together. They love learning and are picking it up quickly. Peace and her sister Ketra also love dancing and playing games with the rest of the PFP girls.

    Over the years, Peace’s father has made some improvement with his mental state and is now able to help rear cattle for neighbors to earn a small living. During school holidays he visits his children and the family is working on rebuilding ties. Peace now has hope for her future and loves visiting with her dad in a controlled and safe environment.
