The fortunate children of the Prana project: Praveen’s story
With heart and soul, flight attendant Monica Nowak helped Praveen to find his feet on the road to independence
Through help alliance´s Prana project and the uncompromising support of Monica Nowak, flight attendant at Lufthansa, what seemed impossible at the beginning has become reality for Praveen. Praveen had an almost forgotten desire: to become a cook. For a child with his past this was no easy goal. At only 20, Praveen is already reflecting on a turbulent life: his mother was burned to death in a so-called “kitchen accident” when he was four years old. His alcohol-dependent and violent father took no responsibility for him and his siblings. In the following years, he was passed back and forth between relatives and children’s homes until he and his siblings finally came to the Prana Project in 2013.
