United Way of Central Iowa SPECIAL

United Way of Central Iowa SPECIAL

Aisha faced a shattering decision: acquire a husband three times her age (and with three wives already) or forfeit her family and her country. Those were the options her father presented her with in the remote Nuba Mountains of Sudan—one of the most isolated and war-torn regions in the world. She was a 16-year-old from Des Moines. Either choice meant losing her future, her life.

But waiting for her across a desert and an ocean—if she could make it back—was a community of people who would lock arms to fight for her future alongside her.

Our friends at the United Way of Central Iowa have captured the story of a former iJAG student Aisha. Please read more about Aisha here.
