In this episode, I’m talking with Tabitha’s Mpamira who shares her incredible story which begins when her own African grandmother was sold as a child into a forced marriage with an older man in exchange for a cow. Tabitha’s mother was also forced into child marriage in exchange for a goat, but fought back and escaped. So began the journey of freedom that was passed on from mother to daughter.

Tabitha's heroic story and activism was made into a documentary, screened at the United Nations, called: Victors: A Song to the Lions."  With only a single Motorcycle and cell phone, Tabitha Mpamira moved day and night to protect young girls in Kenya from rape and sexual assault and from contracting HIV from their abuse. 

After Tabitha realizes that she too was sexually abused as a child, she goes through her own healing process turning trauma into activism to protect other young girls from child rape. Tabitha Mpamira’s story is a transformational journey of breaking the family and cultural legacy of sexual violence against women and children. 

This interview with Tabitha is a reflection of the devastating reality for assaulted children and the inspirational people that created a path out. Tabitha’s story is filled with compassion and shows how the actions of a few, can begin to put a stop to decades of depredation. The rise of a woman leading a community that has said, ‘enough is enough.’
