Nantale’s father passed away just after she was born, so she has no memory of him. Her mother struggled to provide for Nantale and her sister Robin, and after a few years she found another man to take her in. Unfortunately her new husband refused to allow her to bring her daughters to live with them and so the mother left them with her grandmother (Nantale’s great grandmother). Nantale’s mother has not made contact in many years and so Nantale has lost hope of ever going back to be with her. When The Peace for Paul Foundation found her, Nantale was living with her great grandmother and a large number of her cousins, all dropped by the great grandmothers own children or grandchildren. The great grandmother had tried to provide for them all, but due to her advanced age was not able to work. The family often went without food and none of the children attended school. Her grandmothers greatest fear was that when she died, Nantale may be forced to the streets or may become a young mother herself due to desperation.
Her great grandmother pleaded with The Peace for Paul Foundation to rescue Nantale and her sister Robin so they would have a chance at a better life. In 2017, both girls were welcomed into the PFP family and they can now look toward their future with hope. PFP continues working to ensure they maintain a safe and healthy relationship with their great grandmother as well.
