Carmen, 18 years old, and her baby fighting for a better future

"My name is Carmen Sarita Borda Silva, I'm 18 years old. I got involved with SOLID when I was 5 months pregnant. Before then, I felt very sad, alone, abandoned, I had no one to talk to, no one to advise me, and my daughter's father had abandoned me at that time. I got to know SOLID, in the moments that I needed it the most, the mentors began to visit me, to talk to me about my rights and those of my daughter.


I began with a report to my daughter's father to pay support. Now I am studying gastronomy in the morning and in the afternoon I occasionally work to have an economic income. Now I feel very happy and content with the support that SOLID gives me because they taught me to move forward and not to fall behind. I thank them for having helped me during my most difficult time”.
