A story of child violence and trauma
Naasu is a rape victim. She decided to share her story in her 50th speaker series with a theme: “A survivors triumphant story from powerless to power”
She narrates her story to 165 beneficiaries at Don Bosco Fambul. Reminding the children that beating rape is her personal story. As at 15&16 years old she was raped by a clergy man and also her own uncle. She has since lived with the trauma for 33years now.
