Counseling Sessions for Anne add Value

By Jacqueline K. Ingonga | Lead Counselor

Anne Nanjala, one of the girls rescued from marriage by Juhudi organization volunteers has been successfully attending weekly counseling sessions to help her heal from the trauma of being forced into marriage.

The sessions have been necessitated by Anne’s previous attitude towards male teachers, which she developed against men while in the brief painful marriage union. Because of her immediate experiences, Anne has been having a mind-set that all men are bad. However, to reverse this trend, we at Juhudi have engaged services of an external counselor to help her out of that mind state.

We thank those who have contributed towards this noble course and we are happy to report that it is adding value due to the positive results being witnessed. We also thank Mabel the counselor, for finding time to attend to Anne despite her busy schedule in the counseling profession.

This is what Anne said a week ago when asked about what she thought about the male teachers in her school: “When I came here to join the school, I wasn’t free as I thought the male teachers were just like the cruel man who had forcefully married me”. “But now I realize that they are actually out to assist me get educated, I am no longer afraid”.

We welcome comments on this update from all our sponsors and readers.
