ZAMBIA: Former prostitute now a role model

AfricaNews "After seven years of exchanging sex for money, Chanda finally found her redemption through a drop- in-center called ‘Tasinta,’ where she is now an instructor for former prostitutes. Chanda 37, a proud wife and a mother of three now, takes AfricaNews reporter through her journey of change.

Chanda disclosed she was lured into prostitution as young as 13 after the cold hand of death left her double orphaned. “I lived with my parents on the Copperbelt, (Zambia’s largest copper producing province) and my parents died when I was 12 years old and my aunty took me in and we moved to the capital city, Lusaka.’’"
