Kaddette, 15 years old
Kaddette’s father was killed in Rwanda and her mother opened a bar in Mbarara. She used 13-year-old Kaddette and other girls as bait to bring in men into the bar for drink and sex.
When her mother died, Kaddette could not run the business. Her baby brother also died and then one of the women from the church took her baby sister. Kaddette was so depressed from being left alone in the misery of prostitution that she tried to commit suicide.
One of the Ladies of Hope brought her to the church and they took her into the Home of Hope. She is still having a hard time coming out of her depression but she is getting better all the time.
