Leah Sharibu, a bright teenager, was kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists on 19 February 2018 along with 110 other schoolgirls, aged 11-19, from a government school in Dapchi, a town in the northeast part of Nigeria. While other girls were released, Leah is the only hostage that remains in captivity simply because she refused to renounce her Christian faith.
The LEAH Foundation was established to bring freedom and empowerment to Leah and girls like her who fear to do such everyday activities as attend school because of the ongoing threat and campaign of terror by Boko Haram. In the past ten months, the LEAH Foundation has helped 12 girls relocate to a safer location so they can continue their studies.
Your donation will help educate and empower 12 girls to be examples to others.
