EU Children of PEACE in Somalia: Safyia goes to school

17/03/2014 – By the age of 14, Safyia had never attended school. She used to work for a wealthy family in Mogadishu, to support her underprivileged family. Safyia’s father is unemployed and her mother struggles to earn enough to provide for her family. One day, Safyia was accused by the “employer” family for having stolen jewellery. For that, she was first mistreated, insulted and finally severely beaten. This called the attention of Hamda, a nearby neighbour Community Case Worker (CCW) of the Cesvi organisation, who immediately intervened and provided assistance to the traumatised girl.
