Leah Sharibu was taken into captivity by terrorists
at age 14.
When her village was attacked on February 19th, 2018, Leah Sharibu, along with 109 classmates, was captured by terrorists. Leah was the only girl who was not released, because of her refusal to renounce her Christian faith.

What kinds of captivity are girls in today?
Apart from being in physical captivity like Leah and others, many girls are held in emotional, sexual, and religious captivity in Nigeria and around the world.
Some girls are afraid to go to school because of the threat of an attack.
Some women are left vulnerable after their husbands have been killed in an attack.
