During a meeting with the guardians of our Neema girls, the area chief came to encourage the guardians to provide moral support for their girls while they are in the Neema program. Here is a portion of his statement:
"I do not know where you people were sometime back. We have had so much going on with the girls in this area. After they get pregnant or give birth to children, they are discriminated upon and are treated so badly by men who make them sex tools. You have brought a very good idea to my area of jurisdiction and many girls that I know are in this place and right now I am not having to settle many cases concerning them.
Thank you for choosing to bring Neema to this village. May other Neema's come up because it is of great benefit."
