    Karen’s Story

    Karen’s parents live in deep poverty and have always struggled to find work in the village where they live. The family most often went without food or other basic needs and though they love her very much, the cost of school fees was too high and Karen had not been able to attend school regularly.  Her parents eventually the village to look for work, but did not bring Karen with them. A teacher in the village realized the difficulties Karen was living through and she took her in as one of her own children.  As one person on a teacher’s salary, even she struggled to raise the fees for Karen to attend and she almost always went without school supplies. 

    Now a part of the PFP Juniors program, Karen attends a highly ranked primary school and has big dreams to become a teacher, just like her friend and guardian.  While PFP supports Karen with education and medical costs, she continues to live with the kind teacher and enjoys spending time with her new family.
