They killed my ma and my pa and impregnated me, three men during the war. I live by myself and my two children are sitting at home, not going to school. Carmen was ten when she was gang raped during the brutal civil war in Liberia that lasted from to The conflict left a generation of children orphaned and traumatised, without education or skills to make a living, and thousands of teenage girls were left pregnant from rape, with no means to support their children.
Now Carmen has no choice but to work as a hopojo , or sex worker, to support her son, now 10, and her daughter, seven. Blessing, 27, is another sex worker with three children by different fathers. Younger teenage girls who were orphaned in the war, or whose parents are too poor to support them, are also turning to sex work to pay for food and school. Men traumatised from the war and disempowered from a lack of jobs are rejecting family values, relationships and responsibility for the children they father.
We have no way of making a living. At times I wish I could be a girl child too, just to go in the street and have sex for money. Kassa, 23, was ten when she first began selling her body, and has given her two children away to more well-off families because she cannot afford to provide for them. She says there are many young girls working on the streets because their parents are either dead, or unable to provide.
I graduated, but then I had to go back to prostitution. Fifteen year old Mary goes to school in the day like any normal teenager. At night, she changes out of her school uniform and accompanies the other women out onto the main road, to sell her body for money. The young women believe that education and vocational skills training would help them to leave the streets, start businesses and transform the future for the next generation of girls.
I always tell them that education is the key to success, focus your attention on your education, it will help you tomorrow. The project teaches vocational skills to girls and women aged 15 to 30 to help them start businesses, and will be offering training in how to start group savings schemes. Since learning how to make soap, Temba has left the street and now supports her four children by running a stall selling her produce in Tubmanberg.
