The abuse of young girls is a little-known horror in Cameroon. According to UNICEF, one in five girls aged between 15 and 19 has been raped or sexually abused. Even this may be vastly under-estimated. The issue is rarely talked about.
The Esther Project is a unique Bible-based trauma healing programme. The Project also helps raise awareness of sexual abuse through a campaign for school-aged girls. The local Bible Society distributes Bible leaflets and visits schools and churches teaching girls to protect themselves. With your help, we can successfully run this programme for vulnerable girls and refugees across Cameroon.
