12-year-old Boy Whose Parents Were Killed By Boko Haram Enrolls In Primary School

Twelve year-old Ibrahim Muhammad became an orphan after his parents were
killed by Boko Haram insurgents in Mafa town, Borno state.
He fled with others and arrived at Muna garage camp in Maiduguri where
alone he strives to survive. Ibrahim enrolled as a primary four pupil at
the camp school.

He hopes to be successful in life. UNICEF supports
Ibrahim and other children in a similar situation to complete their
primary education.

“So far, UNICEF has established 318 schools and Temporary Learning
Spaces in internally displaced persons camps and host communities with
about 150,000 pupils, provided with basic instructional materials
including school bags and over 70,000 girls have received school
uniforms in Borno state”
