Help a young mother like violet get the support she needs
When 14 year old Violet decided to leave her family home and move in with her sister so that she could be closer to school, she dreamed of finishing her education and having a bright future to look forward to – just like any other girl her age.
But one night changed her life drastically. While her sister was away, Violet was sexually assaulted by her brother-in-law, a man she thought was part of her family, and a man she thought she could trust.
Violet that was still just a child at the time, she discovered she was pregnant.
That was four years ago. Still only 18 years old, Violet is now faced with raising her beautiful daughter alone, without the proper phycological support and without the education she could have had.
