Baauw and Siiwaa

Baauw came two years ago to Daauw Home, and started working as a trainee, receiving a salary and learning all matters of running and building up a homestay and restaurant. Baauw was refused to marry the man she was in love with and after struggling years full of emotions she did not know what to do with, she found another man and got pregnant. Half way the pregnancy he left her and Baauw was forced to give labour outside the house according to traditions.

When she arrived with us she had no self-esteem at all and was wearing dirty clothes and her daughter had clothes with holes and dirty not combed hair. All they showed was we are not worth anything, keeping clean and good clothes in their bags.

In the following months Kajsiab team worked with Baauw and he learned that she is worth something and that she has amazing skills she did not know about. They taught her how to take care of her daughter in ways of hygiene and nutrition.

After a year Baauw blossomed up and her daughter changed into a happy little healthy girl,Who went to school tool. However Baauw still had many deep emotions to deal with and the following year was very hard. She had some old ways of behavior she had to let go of. At this point is still learning and healing every day. She dreams of someday opening her own home stay.
