All sanctuaries and Ghettoes host children. Most of them are granddaughters helping their grandmothers in exile, sometimes younger women are accompanied by their own children. Most of the time the children are left at the husbands home and are separated from the mother even in very young age.
In Gambaga Simon Ngota’s former “Gambaga Outcast Home Project” managed to enroll al children at school. School-uniforms and food had to be provided. The son of one woman had achieved secondary school which made all of the women very proud. We aim at sending all children at the sanctuaries and ghettoes to school and provide a good education for them. A generation with close bonds to witch-hunt victims and a high awareness for their problems are the best advocates against witch-hunts.
