Rihanna’s mother abandoned her and her brother when they were young. She has never returned and the children live alone with their father. Her father is uneducated and currently doing part-time work where he earns hardly enough money for survival. He is diabetic and struggles to manage his illness.The money earned must go to his treatments and there is little left to feed and care for the children’s needs. There is no money to send the children to school, so prior to joining PFP, Rihanna and her brother stayed home.
Now a part of the PFP Juniors program, Rihanna attends a highly ranked primary school and has big dreams to become a nurse someday. While PFP supports RIhannawith education and medical expenses, she continues to live with her father, who she loves very much.
