Kojo

„Kojo is my name. Nine years ago I was a street boy in Jamestown. I got to know Chance for Children and they gave me the chance to change my life. First they taught me in the house as a preparation for my schooling. Then I was able to live at the Hebron house until I completed my basic education. I had different options of professions to choose after finishing school. Out of the possibilities I chose to become a plumbing engineer. This apprenticeship will take four years. I have now started my second year of the apprenticeship and I stay at one of the youth flats. I’m looking forward to finish it to be able to look after myself and my family in the future. For some years my younger sister has also been supported by Chance for Children in our family.”

(Kojo, 21 years old, Chance for Children)
