Mohamed came to the ICC at the beginning of May 2017 and we reunified him with his father at the beginning of June 2017. His father and step-mother had separated so the original reason that led him to to the street was now no longer an issue. As of the end of June 2017, he is still at home. We will be paying school for him in September 2017 but will be paying extra lessons for him during the rainy season.
This is what he wanted to say:
My name is Mohamed. I am 15 years old. I have been on the streets since September 2016. The reason why I am on the streets is because my mum and dad separated and me and my step mum did not get on. On the streets, I lived in Susan’s Bay.On the streets, i smoked jamba. To make money i broom and blye. When I finish school, i want to be a minister. I support Barcelona and Chelsea.
Since June 2017 until the end of February 2018, Mohamed has stayed home without returning to the streets. We paid school fees for him in September 2017 and he is doing very well at school. We saw him at Christmas 2017 for the Christmas party.
Throughout 2018, Mohamed 2 has stayed at home without ever returning to the streets. Out of all the children whom we have reunified, he is one of the best behaved. We never have any complaints about him from his family or his school. His school report and attendance are always excellent. We paid school again for him in September 2018 and he is about to sit the BECCE later this year. As of February 2019, he is still at home and doing very well.
