PATRICK & CYRIL

Patrick and Cyril lived between the Opeibea and Okponglo intersections in Accra. Our FOA Leaders got know them over a year through our weekly street outreach programs. Cyril wants to be a doctor and a philanthropist when he grows up. Patrick wants to be a community leader to address issues of sanitation in Accra. They often looked out for our FOA Leaders and spoke about going to school. Cyril even finished a 250 page novel in 2 days and started teaching Patrick how to read. They have been enrolled at Smile Child Academy, a Future of Africa partner school, and we are proud of the progress they are making. We have successfully reunited them with their families and we look forward to helping them live a life of wellbeing and purpose.
