    Sabrina’s Story

    “I am one of four girls in my family. My father died when I was very young and I do not remember him at all. My mom stays in Moroto with my sister and stepfather but I could not stay with them because it was an unsafe and unstable environment. I used to live with my auntie and grandmother who tried to care for me. Food was not always there and even water was not around. To make a small income I would buy cassava, cook it and then sell it to people. This money would help me eat and save to go to school.

    One day, my cousin Mary that I stayed with met a PFP social worker. They talked to us and asked if we wanted to go to school. We said yes! Some time later, they returned and we joined Peace for Paul. Now life is so nice. I have lots of food and water and there is little illness like before. I go to school and my best subject is Entrepreneurship. I want to study so much to get good marks so I can be a good business lady someday.”

    Sabrina is now attending a trade school studying food catering so she can reach her dream of becoming a chef and have her own catering business. Her goal is to become successful enough to support her grandmother someday. During school holidays, Sabrina returns to Moroto and spends time with her beloved grandmother and cousins there (including Mary, who has now finished trade school).

    Our Moroto Liaison makes weekly check in visits to Sabrina to ensure that she has food and access to all other necessities while spending time with family.
