Breastfeeding time for baby and time to go home for me, the head full of memories.
Three days to get to know each other, three days of exchange.
Three days to gain a most cherished trust.
Thank you.

Somewhere in Africa, a Catholic Mission managed by two Nuns assisted by a small staff is hosting young mothers, often in their teens and in profound distress.
•
They are generally servant girls or “small hands” coming from the country side in order to constitute their dowry.
•
In the city, they are treated as slaves by their employers who often abuse them, “forget” the pay days and end up throwing them in the street once they get close to giving birth.
Some others are sent to this community by the Vice Squad following a rape or an attempted infanticide.
•
Regardless of their beliefs, they are welcomed by the Sisters who give them tenderness, healthcare and even provide them with basic hospitalisation when necessary.
•
They receive education in all respects and are taught to become independent for a brighter future.

Afternoon is time for studies.
Sitting on their bed in the dormitory, the girls do their homework. One can certainly feel the complicity and the spirit of mutual supportiveness.

After morning care, we move on to school education.
A small room without chairs, a blackboard, a great deal of respect and the precious desire to transmit and receive knowledge ...

Keyah, 15, whose name has been changed to protect her identity, has been exploited, raped, sold and thrown out into the street pregnant and HIV positive.
Keyah, 15, still so kind and smiling.

On the second day and to my greatest surprise, the young girls ask to appear uncovered, in agreement with the Sisters of course.
They are aware of the risks involved but their decision is final: they refuse to live a life in fear.
Like every morning, the day begins with a medical examination.

Supper is over. The same goes for our first day together.
The sun is about to set and it's time for Compline, the last service of the day.
An overwhelming silence settles until dawn.
We all go to bed.

A long-time resident prepares our dinner, under the benevolent supervision of a Sister.
A meal, as simple as it is, is a time of reunion. It means joy and communion, a precious moment uniting people deeply.

Decades ago and after tough negotiations, the Sisters invited me to join them for a few days on the express condition that no boarder could ever be identified in any photographs.
It is lead by this spirit that I started my first roll.
