Anne Nanjala a 13 year old is now happy after being rescued from imminent marriage. She had dropped out of school in May 2008. Our project community monitors for early marriages intervened in time to save Anne. "I am grateful to Juhudi Children for saving me and restoring my hope of continuing with education" Anne

Currently, Anne is staying with one of our community volunteers as reconciliation with her parents is on going.
