Betty Makoni founded the Girl Child Network to provide a haven for young victims of sexual abuse. At age 6, Betty herself was raped and at the age of 9, she witnessed the tragic killing of her mother during a domestic violence incident…..her life mission and purpose became to protect and serve young Zimbabwean girls! Check out her profile below…
