When her father passed away, 12 year old Fola* and her family were now left in a desperate situation. Bereft, lonely and without support, her mother no longer had any financial stability and her family was forced to relocate. In unfamiliar surroundings, Fola wandered the streets, trying to find ways to support her mother. Alongside the practical concerns of everyday living, Fola’s dreams fell apart when she was forced to leave school. When Bose, a volunteer Care Worker found them, she invited Fola and her brothers to the Life Centre and with their support, Fola is delighted that she can once again attend school and engage in her love of learning.
