EDUCATION ALLOWS GIRLS TO CHOOSE THEIR OWN FUTURE

Providing girls with an education protects them from the vulnerabilities of poverty. Instead of hustling on the streets, earning income through prostitution, or being forced into early marriages, educated girls are able to pursue their vocational dreams, free of limitation.

Education is very important for survivors of sexual violence because it helps to bring back their confidence—instilling a hope for a better future. Education helped me to come out of the violent cycle of forced prostitution that I was caught in. It has also helped me to open my heart to better things in life. Now, I have the hope of one day bringing others into freedom. Education helps survivors, like me, recognize their dignity in life.

The survivor-leaders in Freely in Hope motivate me to achieve my academic dreams. Those who were once scholars are now leaders. I want to be a powerful and inspiring leader like them.

I am ending sexual violence in my community by sharing my story. By helping the girls in my community share their stories, it encourages them to seek justice and imprison the perpetrators.
