Script Details

She is a young strong girl, but has been through a lot. 
When I was fifteen a man came and proposed to me.
When the man came he said to my parents

that he had come to marry ‘the girl’.
My parents thought this was good because I’d just moved to the area,
and they didn't have enough money to pay for my education.
So they decided to give me as a wife to the man,
and let me go with the man while i went to school.
But I said "No, this man is going to take me to be a housewife...
I’m not ready, I want to finish my education.”

I was very angry at my parents and there were
friends around me who provoked me, saying,

“Soon she’s going to be married...she’s no longer in
the same class we started in.”

So I felt alone and felt so sad.

I ran from my parents and decided to move away to
live with my grand-mum.

My mum went to my grand-mum and told her that they
promised me to this man

but I had refused the marriage, she was
begging for me to come back home.And I decided to go.

I was still not confident enough to stay
at home so I was crying all along.

When World Vision came, on the day we were sitting talking
and discussing together,

and a few volunteers came along and met us. they asked
‘what are you doing’

and I explained somebody had come to
marry me. I then said "today's my day, he is coming for me."

The intervention team from WV said,
“this is not done, we have been in this community

saying that men should not marry girls under the age of 18”.
So that day was a very big day for me.

That was the end of this marriage.
