DST is one of the ways of achieving my goals. I am going to share my digital story to my organization and community to create awareness and educate adolescent girls, young women and for community to give opportunity to girl child. During DST I learnt more computer skills spending more time on computer like never before. I gained more confidence to share my story anywhere and with any person through story telling sharing.

Moving the goalposts - a platform for change

I was denied the right for education at 15yrs old due to peer pressure which led to early pregnancy, I was stigmatized and isolated from other girls from the community. I was thrown away from the family and forced to marry the man. After joining MTG, a girl child organization, I was trained in different skills gaining confidence and courage which enabled me to have a room for change in life.
