Ochola Treasure


    Ochola’s Story

    Before joining the PFP family, Ochola lived with both his mother and father in the slum of Masese. Neither of his parents had an opportunity to receive an education and this made obtaining employment and providing basic needs incredibly difficult. In addition, Ochola’s mother is deaf. Disabilities are widely misunderstood in Uganda and without any resources she struggles in her everyday life. Ochola’s parents eventually requested that PFP help their son to go to school and obtain an education. Ochola now attends a highly ranked private boarding school and wants to become a manager one day so that he can manage his own business and help his parents. 

    During school holidays, Ochola returns to Masese to spend time with his mother and father. His dad currently sells brooms and his mom cultivates a small garden near their home as a means of income. A PFP social worker makes frequent home visits to ensure his safety and well being. In Ochola’s free time he enjoys swimming, playing gym games and video games.
