    Yasin’s Story

    Yasin was abandoned by his mother when he was just one year old and his father had never been in the picture at all. Yasin was brought to the woman who cared for him while his mother worked and one day she just didn’t return for him. Since then, he had been taken care of by this woman who he calls Jajja (grandmother). She is an elderly woman with disabilities who tried her best to provide for Yasin.

    Yasin had originally been enrolled in the PFP Juniors program for education related expenses while he continued to live with his “grandmother,” however it became evident that she would not be able to continue to provide for him. He was often sick and did not have enough to eat. In 2018, Yasin joined the PFP Main Program and has found safety and security there. During school holidays his Jajja would come visit him. Sadly, in 2020 Yasin’s Jajja passed away.

    Yasin now attends one of the best private primary schools in Uganda and is working hard to achieve his future dreams. In his free time, Yasin likes playing with toys, playing football (soccer) and swimming.
