Mary Solio, 19
Escaped from Early Marriage
Mary is one of the first rescues of the Tasaru Ntomomok Rescue Center. Mary was raped by her husband while she was held down by three of her uncles. Though she became pregnant as a result of the rape, she continued her education under the sponsorship of Tasaru while her mother took care of her child. She is now reconciled with her family and has a part-time job as a primary school teacher in her village. She continues to visit the girls and rescue workers at Tasaru.
