I came to the SHE Rescue Home in 2017 when I was 13 years old after being sexually exploited in my community out in the provinces. The perpetrator is currently in prison, but his family is threatening to harm my family and kill me, prohibiting me from returning home.
My mother left my family when I was very young and my father has raised me on his own. I have 8 siblings, but only 3 are still at home with my father. My father supports our family, working hard as a laborer on farms. It is not safe for me to visit my family, so my social worker organizes for me to meet them regularly in a nearby location.
My aim is for a safe reintegration back into my family. However, if my social worker has concerns that my family, home, and community situation cannot be made safe she will start looking into foster family placement. I am not sure what I want to be in the future.
