Nkumu Fed Fed graduates 75 teenage GBV survivors, hands them start up kits

75 teenage GBV survivors have been handed start-up kits to implement their business ideas which they had created.

The kits were handed upon their graduation from a 10 months training program dubbed "Stop Violence now against women and girls.

The project funded by the European Union had as its objective to contribute to the fight against Gender-Based Violence in the crisis-affected North West region, strengthen protection response to GBV and empower survivors and increase Community resilience to respond to GBV in the region. 

Having trained these survivors in hairdressing, tailoring, motor mechanics, sewing, carpentry, barbing, decorations, manicure, pedicure, glass cutting and many other fields, the President General of Nkumu Fed Fed Eunice Tita Tata expressed joy while urging them to use the kits handed to them judiciously.

"The best moment in my life is when I feel so fulfilled to experience success. And when we want to honor our successes. Nkumu Fed Fed is there to transform victims into survivors...
We are telling the beneficiaries that when you go and use them well, you will have more opportunities in the future....but if you go and use it well we will be coming for you to be trainers of future trainees."

While expressing gratitude for the training given to her, a 17 years old girl who was raped and is one of the beneficiaries told her story.

"I used to attend COMINSUD at Ntarinkon when thieves broke into our house and raped me I went there for consultation and help. When I went there I met one aunty who loves me a lot and started working at Nkumu Fed Fed and registered me. I have learned this trade in tailoring and decoration for two years. And I believe that from where I was, my life has changed now and I am better off now."

Wanyu also received training as a tailor and promises to make Nkumu Fed Fed proud. 

"I have learned tailoring for the last two years in Nkumu Fed Fed. This tailoring will take me a long way. At the beginning of this crisis, I did not know what to do. I enrolled as a tailor I got  into Nkumu Fed Fed and I am now a proud graduate and I will make Nkumu Fed Fed proud" she said


Prior to these project, the beneficiaries were being trained in other organizations. Under the "Stop Violence now against women and girls", implemented by Nkumu Fed Fed with funding from the European Union, the beneficiaries were trained for ten months.
