Rosaline, 35 Dogbo, Benin by Phil Borges

Rosaline, 35 Dogbo, Benin

Rosaline fights against the two threats looming over impoverished girls in Benin: child trafficking and forced marriage.  Most young girls are voluntarily handed over by their desperately poor parents, who believe they are proving a better future for their child.  Rosaline brings child victims into her home until she can find long-term solutions for their care.  To bring awareness to this issue, Rosaline started a Social Promotion Center.  As a result, the frequency of forced marriage has fallen and hundreds of parents have been educated about the risks of child trafficking.
