Destined for teen marriage
Born into a poor Muslim family, Sagufa's alcoholic father abandoned his family, leaving her mother with three young children and no means to look after them. Sagufa, being a girl, had no hope of an education. Her destiny was a teenage marriage, similar to so many young girls in her situation. Through our contacts in the slum we were made aware of the difficulties the family was facing and Sagufa was taken into Future Hope as a day scholar at the age of six. Bright, inquisitive and hardworking, she rose above her poor start in life and gained a hugely competitive place to study law.
