"I want to become a lawyer so I can defend women who are abused" - Mbanugo Gift Oluchi

Mbanugo Gift Oluchi got her testimonial out of primary school

Mbanugo Gift Oluchis’ parents got separated when she was about 7years old. Then she was at her village in Delta State.
As a child, she was involved in child labor so as to feed and cater for her school needs before she dropped out of school.
Oluchi was out of school for over 2years and this affected her self worth and esteem as a child. She found it extremely difficult to communicate, read or wrtie.
According to her, she never thought she would be opportuned to be educated again.

 She was brought into the city of Lagos by her uncle and spent over 6months in the city without being enrolled into a school because her uncle she lived with couldnt afford her educational needs.
