Two young ladies from Gwaza, Borno state, Mabruka Manu and Maryam Abubakar Musa, who were taken into captive by terrorist group Boko Haram have dusted any form of trauma they might have experienced, defied all odds and craved a name for themselves.
How did the Journey start for them?
The Girls for Girls phone-in radio program, created by Girl Child Concern in collaboration with Education Cannot Wait and UNICEF attracted the interest of a generous individual. Through their inspiring stories, these girls not only found meaningful employment but also demonstrated their resilience and influenced others.
Recently, they both became certified Midwives.
They both showcased a determined and resilent spirit to achieve this feat. They went through the rigourous training as Health workers and later journeyed into becoming registered and certified Midwives.
Currently, Mabruka and Maryam both belong to GCC and Women For Health NGOs.
This is a huge breakthrough for them both.
