Building Hope: How Mara’s House Offers Young Women a New Beginning
Imagine being a young woman who has survived persecution in Nigeria, facing hatred, abuse, and death threats from family members. In a country where 78% of girls lack primary education and one in three women face gender-based violence and economic inequality, life is especially difficult. But for these survivors, the challenges are even greater.
Sharon is a 19-year-old survivor of Christian persecution in Nigeria. Rejected by her family and illiterate, she grew up under Sharia Law, where her mother was murdered by her own father for converting to Christianity. Now, with a one-year-old son and no skills or education, she has no hope for a better future. But we can change that.
