The Case of Prisca

Mama Helen Pecheye
Mama Helen Pecheye

Prisca, the teenage daughter of Pecheye Helen, was taken away form her widowed mother by her stepbrother who happens to be a gendarme officer residing in Bamenda. He promised her a sound education in exchange for her assistance with house chores.  Helen saw in this an excellent opportunity for her daughter who was then in primary school, and gladly let her go. However after six years of toil in her step brother’s house and not a single day of school, Prisca finally fled, and with the assistance of benevolent passengers she met at the motor-park, was able to find her way back home. Her mother was greatly disappointed that Prisca had returned not only empty-handed, but had to go back to primary school at a very advanced age. Mockery from her classmates and village whispers about why she had fled from town embittered Prisca, and she became defiant and way ward, resulting in a teenage pregnancy and the termination of any hopes of a formal education. Helen believes that her stepson should be held responsible for the wreck that her daughter has become, but can hardly imagine how she can go about it.  Nascent Solutions through project SHIELD is assisting Prisca to get justice for her daughter, many more exploiters would give a second thought before taking advantage especially of poor relatives.
