Situation: Sameera Yusuf was introduced to us by the YPP Leader of Dogon Nini, in Potiskum. She is 21 years of age. She was neonate when she was pick up on the street in Saudi Arabia and was adopted by a Nigerian Woman. She was brought to Nigeria for a visit, but was not able to return to Saudi Arabia because the woman who adopted her was not financially buoyant to pay for her ticket, so she was left with her friend to care for her. She promised to pay and send money for her education and up keep. Currently Sameera has completed her primary and secondary school education with the help of the adopted mother.

Semeera never know that she was not her daughter until the woman was sick and dead, that left Semeera traumatized. She has never faced any life challenging situation until she was been ask to go out and look for a means of survival herself. She doesn’t have some basic items a lady should have.  Already there is a process going on to get her married.

“I don’t want to get married now I want to go to school, She said”.

Action taken by Counselors: the counselors took her to the shop and bought the following items for her. Tooth brush, bathing soap, washing soap, body cream, pads and some beverages e.t.c, for her up keep pending on our next session.Upon receiving these items she was very happy.  [PICTURE: Samira, flanked on both sides by Habeeba and Ezekiel]
