Abigail's parents divorced when Abigail was young. Abigail comes from a young family, father often drunk and mother made alcohol to earn a little money. After Abigail finished primary school she had to live with her grandmother where she could go to secondary school. One day an uncle said she had to go out to the corn land to get some corn. There he covered her mouth with tape and raped her. She cried and didn't share it with anyone. After a while she confronted the uncle that she had skipped her period, but he ignored her. She didn't know what to do and months later she confronted the uncle again. He told her to say it was a boyfriend. The sister advised her to have an abortion, but she refused and went to see a pastor. He contacted Esther home where she had her daughter and now wants to go back to school. Abigail is determined to live a successful life. Later she would like to become a teacher.

We deliberately do not have a CBF quality mark. However, we do meet a number of important conditions of this quality mark. One of the reasons that we do not have this quality mark is the costs that are charged for this; this would significantly increase our overhead costs. We prefer to spend this money on the projects we support.
