“I was sold into slavery at 6 years old, first to a carpet factory, and then to a brothel.

Before I attended Art to Healing training programs, I felt dead. I did not believe that I could make anything of my life.

After meeting Atira, and taking Art to Healing Programs, now I feel like I am alive again. Now I am a counsellor and a field worker, working with other girls that have been through the same plight as myself.

Art to Healing has helped me to live a new life, and it has restored hope for my future, and faith in myself and my abilities. I am very grateful for the opportunity to participate.”
