Swaric Yongas


    Swaric’s Story

    Swaric’s mother has raised him as a single parent almost his entire life (his dad died of AIDS when Swaric was very young).  She has a small stand near one of the PFP homes where she sells tomatoes, onions and banana leaves, which are used to help pay for their food. There was not enough to send Swaric to school and though she tried, he was only able to complete Primary 6 before dropping out.  

    Now a part of the PFP Juniors program, Swaric attends a highly ranked primary school and has big dreams to become an engineer, so he can “get money to help his mom more”.  While PFP supports Swaric with education and medical costs, he continues to live with his mother and loves her so much.
