Maria15 Years Old
At the age of 15, Maria is learning to read and write for the very first time. Ever since she was 10 years old, she was forced to have sex with 20-30 men a night, so she couldn’t go to school like the other little girls her age. But when Maria was rescued and brought into our Unlikely Heroes family, she was so eager to learn — that light inside of her, though it was dimmed by the trauma of slavery, was beginning to grow brighter again.
Now, Maria is working with tutors and her excitement for learning is inspiring other girls! She’s so smart and incredibly motivated. We know her future is full of opportunities and her healing would not be possible without YOU. Thank you for making these big moments possible. Become a monthly partner and give this opportunity to more children around the world!
