Human Rights Awareness Profile … Jane
January 17, 2022

At 12 years old, Jane was abused and exploited by a family member. When she became pregnant at a tender young age, she lost all hope for her future and her will to live.

Social welfare officers called the Courage House team and Jane and her son were warmly welcomed at Courage House. Light returned to her eyes, and now she is able to continue her education while she raises her son in a safe environment. Jane is now finishing Form Four and planning to attend college this upcoming year, and her son is healthy and happy as he attends preschool. Her dream is to be a secretary or a lawyer.
