Lillian ran away from home under the cover of darkness in order to keep
from being cut (female circumcision) and married to a 65 year old man who
had other wives. She was 11 years old at the time. She was in the 3rd grade
and when she came home for holiday she learned that she would be cut
and married off with no other opportunity to attend school.
Lilian was saved by Nosim Mission and sent to a safe sanctuary boarding school.
She completed high school and is now in college.
Many more girls need to have the opportunity that has been given to Lilian.
Through our sponsoring program these young girls can be saved from a life
of poverty and salvery.
