On Her Terms

Tanya is ashamed that she ran away from home — ashamed that she had to live on the streets, ashamed of the names she is called and ashamed of what it takes to survive.

She needs to know that she is strong — strong enough to have fled an abusive home, strong enough to have survived on the streets and strong enough to have made choices that no girl should have to make. Strong enough to dream of a future for her and her child and strong enough to take the next step — on her terms.

Without the involvement of women and girls who can identify with what it means to be a teenage girl on the streets, nothing will change.

Without the support of all those who are outraged that girls like Tanya have to survive on the streets, this vital work will 
not progress.

If we are to avoid the situation where countless girls are still living lives trapped in fear and shame on the street, we need to learn from those who are transforming their lives — and equip those who say it is too hard and takes too long to know that they can create the difference they long to see.

Run Without Fear
To launch Amos Trust's ‘On Her Terms’ campaign, we invited four young women from our partner Cheka Sana Foundation in Tanzania, to join us in running the first Zanzibar Half Marathon for gender equality. This is their story.

Without the work of Amos’ street partners, girls like Tanya will never know they are strong. Without the involvement of women and girls who can identify with what it means to be a teenage girl on the streets, they will be forgotten. Without the support of all those who are outraged that girls like Tanya have to survive on the streets, nothing will change.

If we are to stop countless girls from living lives trapped in fear and shame on the street, we need to learn from those who are transforming their lives — and equip those who say it is too hard and takes too long to know that they can create the difference they long to see.

Your support will allow us to:

  • bring 20 women workers to the UK to find their voice and share what they have learned

  • pass on their learning to those who want to set up new projects

  • create an online platform so they can continue to learn from each other and strengthen their work

  • find ways for the girls who benefit from these projects to shape their futures.
