“My life plan changed when I started my training at Minga. First, because I started to be aware of myself, of what I wanted for my future. Now, five years after I started, I want to become a lawyer because I have seen the needs of many women and witnessed how these trained women from my community reported abuse and violence and were not listened to. They had limited opportunities because they were women from the riverside. Now I’m finishing school and I want to continue studying. I’m going to be a lawyer and defend the women of my community”.
