A life basead on personal experience to help girls and Women being their voice in society

My name is Melucha Catsossa, degree in Anthropology in Mozambique, I am 27 years old, i am Mozambican, I am an orphan of a father and mother since I was 12 years old and I was chosen by an American Peace Corps teacher to be part of a group of activists of the Girls' Club in Development Education and Health at the University I was a Social Work activist and researcher in Young Women Leaders in Sexual and Reproductive Healfh and Rights, researcher Mapping Services, Actors, and Spaces of Influence in Supporting Orphaned and Vulnerable Children in the Communities of Tete and Manica Provinces in 2017, educator of the children at the São José de Cluny-Tete orphanage center school. Due to the hardships of life I was a child without a child and studied thanks to a scholarship, I currently work as an operator at the Security Control Center in a mining company Vale Moçambique in Tete province Mozambique this is not my passion because it has many orphaned children in my society suffering homelessness, without food unable to enter school and being raped. Just as I had help to study I want to be their voice and encouragement helping them so I ask your help to make this dream come true and show society that the fact that the child is an orphan is not the end of the world also has same rights as other children and stop mistreating them by using them as maids and being subjected to premature marriage.
