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 faced a difficult and hopeless future. But we can change that. Will you help provide a safe refuge and education for young women like Sharon?
What is Mara’s House
Mara’s House offers hope for young women who have endured the unimaginable in Nigeria. These women have been persecuted, terrorized, and forced into marriages at a young age, leaving them traumatized and vulnerable.
But thanks to Christian Faith Ministries, they have found refuge in Mara’s House. Here, they receive shelter, medical care, education, and vocational training, giving them the chance to build a better life for themselves. Each of these courageous survivors and their children has a story of struggle and pain, but with your help, they can have a hope-filled future.
Crossroads needs your support to complete the construction of Mara’s House and provide a safe haven for these young women.
With your prayers and support, you can make a real difference in the lives of these courageous survivors.
