Nagawa Aminah – SPONSORED

is a 14-year-old girl who hopes to be a judge

Aminah is a paternal orphan whose father died of HIV/AIDS. She now stays with her mother, two sisters and one brother in Kyedikyo village in abject poverty because her mother has no permanent job. The family has no land for cultivation so all the food consumed is bought from the market, which is expensive. Her mother tries to make some money with a small business selling fried cassava pancakes and chapatis on the streets of Kassanda and the neighbouring villages. Because Aminah is the oldest in the family, she helps her mother sell her merchandise. One day, at the age of 13, when she was doing her job, she was raped, impregnated and gave birth to baby boy. Despite all of these challenges and in fact, because of them, she wants to continue with her education to become a judge so that she can bring justice to wrongdoers like the man who raped her. She doesn’t know where the money will come from, but your donation could help Aminah get her power back through an education.
