Tricked and shipped

Tricked by their parents into going back to Africa. Hannah and Arif suddenly found themselves at boarding schools in Nigeria and Uganda, far from their home in London

Tricked by their parents into going back to Africa.
Growing up in the UK, Hannah was told by her parents that if she didn’t behave they would send her back home. When she was 11, Hannah found herself at a rural boarding school in Nigeria. Arif thought he was going on holiday but ended up back in Uganda. The experience had a long-lasting impact on them both. We ask Arif’s father why he chose to trick and ship his son.
Thanks for listening. Let us know what you think.
