Ibra spent the whole of 2015 without going to school because of lack of school fees. He has 3 siblings and he is the 2nd born, he lives in Katanga slum with his mother and siblings. His father is a drunkard in the slum and he carries luggage in the market to earn an income.
The father used to beat the mother and the children whenever he got drunk and he was banned from staying with the family by the Police. His mother used to sell sweets along the streets in the city but since this is illegal her capital was confiscated by the authorities and she was left with nothing. Ibra’s father was given an order from the police to look after his family but he only pays for house rent and food once in a while and he refused to pay for the children’s school fees.
Ibra is in search of a sponsor to help him go back to school.
