How you generosity gives new hope to teenagers

Story about a beneficiary:

Feza, 16 years old: I was taken and abused by militia soldiers in Walikale bush when I was 13. Tree years later, I came back to village. Everybody was despised. It was a shame. I decided to leave and go to Goma town. I start new life with prostitute girls. I was the youngest of the team. There life was had. I was bitten many times by my teammates even by men and abused. My face was full of scars. I had passed nights in the gutter using sex to keep my life safe from gangsters. One day I was sick. They dropped me on the road because they said if I die, no one would bury me if I die.

From there someone took me to Children’s Voice dispensary, later to CBK hospital. When I was healed, I got psychosocial assistance and start a vocational training in the training center. I learned to make clothes. Now I have a workshop of tailors and I am helping new girls (ex prostitutes) beginners to perform after training in Children’s Voice centers. I enjoy my new life.

I have a dream, to become a big designer!

Have a look at the precious pictures of the work you are doing for orphans and vulnerable girls in DR Congo!

The progress is coming beside because of your help. On October 29th, 2014, Forty-five young girls and boys will get certificate after vocational training. Forty-five jobs will be created. That was facilitated by your generosity.

The community people and leaders said this education program is a hope that children and youth in their community will be able to work and succeed in the life, their dream are realized and youth lead their community out of poverty. You are contributing to build a good future life to the young people and to the community.

Amina is one of the girls, survivors of sexual violence. “When I was going back from the market in Tongo, We were taken with violence to the bush by five Maimai Shetani rebels. I was with three of my friends. It was after Monusco (UN Peace Keeping Mission in DRC) patrol. I was raped, bitten. I got pregnant and lost my bay because of violence I got. I accepted to cook for them and to be wife of the commandant so I could to survive.

From your HELP I know to make clothes, I have a job “I am born again”. I have a new life.”

Where are many girls who reached their dream of changing life, getting job and fighting against poverty!

We still have a lot to do in eastern of DR Congo to empower girls. But we have faith that your generosity and love will open more doors!

Imagine a country without many women and girls victims of sexual violence and vulnerable without any education when they have to struggle with life, most of them with babies!

With your help, we would like to train 50 girls more in mechanic and sawing. In 8 months, more jobs will be created to children affected by the war.
