Impact Stories

Trafficked Boys are over looked!!

My name is Senga Jean Baptiste I’m 29 years, as a young child alone on the streets of Rwanda, I survived many terrible things throughout the years with no chance to education food and shelter, this left me vulnerable to child trafficking. I was deceived by a trafficker who promised me a job but instead I ended up in the republic of Congo as a child soldier forced to fight on the behalf of the rebels. After my escape back to Rwanda, I vowed to protect and prevent street children from becoming victims like me. I started a foundation the soul of the Rwanda to care for street children by using acrobatics to reach out to the street children to raise awareness about human trafficking in Rwanda. As a Survivor, I am glad to partner with Footprint To Freedom Organization because the organization is led by a survivor of human trafficking like me and it empowered me, supported me and trained me to become a leader to support other survivors. 

Senga Jean Baptiste

Claas and Malaika met in 2018. Touched by her story,

 Claas wrote a song called Survived. Really grasping the mission Malaika is on, he emphasized how she turned her hopelessness into celebrating life. The chorus contains the real message of the song Today is a Good Day!  Meaning Malaika survived the unspeakable and now lives a good life. But in the here and now it also means that beside the bad days, she can be happy, because TODAY is a good day. website link
