My name is Gift and this is my story.
Three years ago, I was a single mother with two children living with my widowed mother. Things were so hard that when my friend told me about traveling to Germany, I agreed! We only made it to Libya where I was sold, raped and tortured. I saw many Nigerians die including my friend Iniobong. When I was deported, I was so ashamed and depressed. Thankfully, I met with people who registered me in a vocational centre and encouraged me. Today I’m a baker in Benin making enough money to take care of my family. My boys will not grow up to be ashamed of their mother. I have new dreams and a new thinking. I am not another person’s property.My name is Gift Jonathan and I am not for sale.
