The community is that is not sensitive to their needs of these challenged people and they have no knowledge of what they are going through. families are breaking off, girls are forced to marry young but just yielding violence. The community is UN healthy, most especially for the girls who have come back from captivity With children the community did not give them good reception so condition forced them to marry because they had no place to stay with their children.
Now they are facing with injustices, and their rights are violated by their husbands, their children are not accepted and they are facing a lot of Domestic violence from their husbands. Their children have become violent in the community and causing insecurity they have no proper homes. We feel that these children and their mothers need empowerment. We have started counseling and training psych-educating them and the community in personal and group transformation and participatory peace building ,and adult learning \strategies so that they can work as a team , respect human dignity and be responsible people in the community
