Janixa

Graduated 2017 / 3 children / 19 years old

Janixa was the victim of a machete attack by her partner.

Abandoned as a baby, Janixa grew up in an orphanage in Ciudad Sandino. She didn't finish elementary school. She escaped to La Chureca, the community by the municipal dump, at the age of 16, entering a cycle of extreme poverty. To escape this situation, she entered into a romantic relationship, which resulted in total control and violence. At the beginning of 2017, Janixa joined the project XtraOrdinary Women. While in the course, she began to question the habit of receiving violence. With the psychological attention and the workshops of work preparation, she managed to become independent. She obtained a stable job with our partner Serviplus.
Today Janixa is an extraordinary single mother, who wants the best for her baby and, to be the exemplary mother she never had. Help us help other women like Janixa.
