Getting back to school
Clement and his brother found themselves living and working on the streets of Bolgatanga after their father's remarriage caused difficulties in their home. Life on the streets wasn't easy. The boys stopped going to school and found themselves earning small money loading trucks at the busy lorry park and sleeping on shop verandas. Their hope for the future was wearing thin.
With support from the AfriKids team, Clement began attending classes at the School of Night Rabbits; evening sessions which act as a stepping stone for children like Clement so they can return to formal school.
After nine months of lessons and counselling with the team, Clement and his brother are back at home and have returned to join their classmates at school again. Despite his difficult childhood, Clement is a confident and determined teenager with a passion for learning.
