We are all humanitarian workers from different backgrounds and different walks of life, living in different parts of the world. We work together because we have a common goal  to make  a difference in the lives of girls and women whose stories we have listened to over the years.  Most of the girls and women we work with have been or are being oppressed by traditions in their own ethnic groups. Some are circumcised and married off at a tender age, others are raped, trafficked or sold into slavery. 


After long time field work experience, we learned that education and skills are the best tools we can use to empower girls and women under traditional bondage. They become courageous human beings who carry the torch for themselves and those coming after them. Education and skills  are the treasures that cannot be stolen from them.
