Comfort Iwutung Izzet
Born in Paidha, a small town in west Nile in Zombo district, Comfort lost her mother while in primary three. Comfort has a surviving parent, her father, but he is not part of her life.
Her Uncle who was a police constable stationed at Naguru police barracks Kampala, took up the responsibility of paying her fees up to primary seven at Naguru infant primary school where she unfortunately dropped out in term two before she could sit her Primary leaving examination in 2009.
After the unfortunate dropping out, Comfort moved back to the village where she stayed with her maternal grandmother and her elder sister. Comfort’s elder sister is a single mother who also struggles to make ends meet. As a result, Comfort began to work in the bar that also had a lodging facility in quest for her survival.
This job was however exposing her to great risk including sexual exploitation from the customers. Fortunately, the place that exposed her to danger was to expose her to help as this was our meeting point while I was on a work trip in this area and took accommodation at this facility. My discussion with her and her grandmother revealed that they both wanted her to continue with education.
Comfort arrived at the home from Paidha on the 26
th of January 2012, went for interviews on the 28th and was admitted to Primary seven at Kidde Primary school on probation since she had spent three years without attending school. She started school on Monday 30th January, 2012 which was the opening day for term 1.
Comfort has since moved on and is gradually settling into Amazing home. We are all getting to learn each other and so far so good. Her fortunes are on the increase as she was voted by the school as the head prefect.
This comes with many challenges and responsibilities but also helps to maintain a sense of self belief and esteem, ingredients greatly necessary in her life right now.
