Jackeline Soila’s story is one of rescue, restoration, and reconciliation. Subjected to FGM (Female Genital Mutilation), and within days of being married off at age 9, she was rescued and brought to a safe place at Hope Beyond Transitional Center.
Jackeline’s community has now committed to ending those harmful traditions since our launching of Just One Africa’s Clean Water Program in their community. Trust has been built, health has been restored, and doors have been opened; allowing important conversations and changing generational mindsets which are bringing understanding on WHY the protection and education of their daughters are so important. This impact is significant. It has saved lives, re-written futures, and changed the world.
There are many other girls like Jackeline in communities that desperately lack access to safe, clean water. They deal with sickness and disease on a daily basis. You can help change that by giving to Just One Africa.
