• Victoria, herself a victim of abuse and rape, has formed a club for young girls facing similar circumstances today.  She sells dry goods to support her four children as well as to help these teenage girls.  She doesn't have the trappings of a nonprofit which makes her efforts that much more relatable to the girls and sustainable.  Your investment can help her reach her vision of a Liberian run 'center' that can provide food, temporary shelter, education and counseling around sexual violence.  This is a tremendously important project.

About The Project

$2500 needed for the community center 
$100 invested by the founder and her supporters

This very important project, the Mahyehdeh (the Woes of a Woman) club, seeks to expand to become a refuge for teenage girls going through feelings of rejection, isolation because of sexual abuse,domestic abuse, forced marriage, female genital mutilation and other very difficult social problems. Your investment will allow Victoria, a survivor, to stabilize (feed, send to school,and counsel) the 10 girls she is currently mentoring as she finalizes her plans for developing a needed Liberian run community center that can serve many more girls. As funding is identified, she is looking at facilities that can also act as a hostel to get the girls off the very dangerous streets at night.  She has the support of the community and is a wonderful asset to her community and Liberia.

..."having the security of a place to sleep makes a huge difference in the life of any teen age girl who is vulnerable and easy prey for any one...some girls enter into prostitution because of hunger. They get enslaved and abused because of hunger" says founder and survivor Victoria Kloty


Paying it Forward

Victoria is a wonderful role model and mentor for the girls. With a center she will be able to help many more girls and hire some staff.  In the first year she hopes to use your investment to stabilize the 10 girls who come to her now and finalize the plans to identify a facility and the funding she needs.  Victoria is paying it forward every day.

Backstory

Founder Victoria Kloty dream project Mahyehdeh was started because she felt it was much needed in her community. She herself is regarded as a hero, a victim and survivor of domestic violence, rape and a forced marriage survivor. She is currently studying for a certificate in teen age counseling. Her ultimate goal is to officially start a nonprofit organization in honor of her mother who was also a victim of the horrible experiences she had suffered. On a lighter note, she loves to cook and is passionate about social work. She plans on hiring 10 people as soon as this project gets off the ground.
