I am an orphan aged 15 years who grew up in a children’s home. A man took advantage of me, and impregnated me when I visited my uncle while on a school holiday. On realizing I was pregnant, my Aunt demanded that I abort so that I could go back to school, but I refused. When I went back to the children’s home, the management of the home refused to take me back, so I was brought to the Kiota in 2014.
By this time, I was 3 months pregnant, and the Kiota took care of me until I delivered a baby boy. Through the Protecting Life Movement Trust’s Kiota project, a well-wisher who was touched by my story agreed to sponsor my education. My baby was taken to a children’s home where he would be cared for till I completed school and had the ability to take care of him.
