Primary School Youth

Apprenticeship Youth


Pascal is the second born in a family of four. Since his father died in 2002, the family has been in the care of their mother, living in their native home of Bungokho. Due to the trauma of losing his father, Pascal could not concentrate in class, and was unable to perform in school. In 2011, he dropped out of school, and has since been looking for another opportunity to apply himself.

In 2013, with support from Friends of TASO, Pascal enrolled in trade school to become a mechanic. He said, “Learning these skills is a great opportunity, and I am working hard to complete the course”. He is grateful to be among those supported to attain a skill.
