Ibrahim’s Story

Allison SchroederOrphan Care

Education is, undoubtedly, empowering for young children.  Ibrahim is one of our residents at St. Mary’s Fatima Interim Care Center.  When asked to write his own story, his focus was on his education.

“Before coming to the home, I was not going to school,” Ibrahim told us. He came to the ICC at only nine years old. Now thirteen, he is enrolled in junior secondary school, “The school I am presently attending is one of the best private schools along the peninsula, and we are getting the best in education. 

“Our teachers are very nice and lovely they know how to teach and we always understand what they teach us.”

At home, he loves the outdoor compound, “beautified” with flowers with space to do laundry on the weekends. 

“We the boys have a very big space to play football and other outdoor games. With all this, I am always feeling at home and am always happy especially when I am with my brothers and sister[s].”

I am very happy to be [at] St. Mary’s Fatima Interim Care Centre. – Ibrahim
