Success story from Hope Centre and More than a Drop

Jackline Mwita Jackie was raised by her mother, who was a local food vendor, first born out of 5 children, ran away FGM and forced marriage with 13. She feels sorry that she could not communicate with her mother and sibling and ended up at Hope Centre in Mugumu, Serengeti. Jacky secured a place at the More Than a Drop centre in Moshi, where she studied a vocational training course for one year. She then did her internship at a hotel in Zanzibar, and because of her excellent performance, was offered a full time role. Now she working as a bar manager assistant. Jackline’s goals: “I would like to support and cooperate with the the community to bring development in the society. I would be happy to educate women on early marriage, women genital multilation and its effects and also the enquality between men and women in the society.”

Because of Covid she was unable to come and intern in our camps, but we are thrilled she managed to get a place in Zanzibar during this difficult time and is still there to this day.
