VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN
THE STORY OF MARIA
Maria never expected that her world will turn around is such obscure and dehumanizing condition in the later part of her life.
Maria married at a very tender age in a remote village in Nigeria. She was not educated because women were not sent to school in those early days. She was given out in marriage at the age of 17 and she had five children (4 girls and a boy).Things were going well for them until she lost her husband 10 years into the marriage. Before her husband died, he left several farmlands for Maria to farm on, she cultivates on the land and would sell her products in the market to support the upbringing of her children.
Because sending females to school was a taboo in the community, Maria gave out 3 of her female daughters in marriage. The remaining two helps in the house chores and farm work. Her only son (Anthony) was in primary 5 when the Nigerian civil war broke out in 1967.Anthony was forced by the Biafran soldiers to join the war. Against the pleading of his mother, he was forced to the war zone, the wailing and cries of his mother did not deter them from taking him away to the war front.
Maria kept praying to God for the safe return of her son, but the worst happened. Her daughter that was not yet married died due to malaria. There is not even a medical facility in the community even till now. She became dejected and lived in pain
Maria was hoping that her son would return from the war to take care of her. It is 45 years after the war, Anthony has not come back. Will he still come back??
All the landed properties left behind by her late husband were taken away from her because she has not a male child to inherit the properties. Anthony has not returned from the war that ended in 1970. To compound her woes, two of her daughters that married died during childbirth. No other person to help. Life became traumatic for her and, Maria suffered from sex racism

At 79, Maria has no one to look after her; she lived in an uncompleted dirt house until CHISTRE’s Director came to complete a one room apartment for her. Four years after, Maria died and her body was decomposing before passers-by noticed she was dead and was stinking.
There are several women going through different barbaric traditions racism in the community.
We want to change these traditions. We want to give women a voice and help them to live even after the demise of their husband. It is most dehumanizing to bury a young girl alive while she was still breathing. Is it because is a woman? Can a male child be dumped in the grave that way? This Violence MUST stop.
SUPPORT THE WORK
CHISTRE works with women and adolescents to empower them to develop positive skills such as self-esteem, confidence, and ability to make positive choices when faced with pressures. This project will help us extend services and supports to over 2000 women in our community to eliminate the discrimination against them
