A New Future for the Chibok Girls – Part 1
Much has been written about the Chibok girls, the 276 schoolgirls from the village of Chibok in northern Nigeria who were kidnapped by Boko Haram in April 2014. A few have been found or rescued in the past few months; most are still missing.
However, there’s another group of those Chibok girls we’ve heard less about — those who managed to escape the night of the abduction.
Joy Bishara, kidnapped by Boko Haram from a secondary school in Chibok, Nigeria in 2014, tells the story of her escape during United Nations Security Council Arria Meeting on Attacks on Schools.
She escaped a mass kidnapping of schoolgirls in Nigeria, graduated from high school in the mountains of Oregon United States and added a visit to the White House to their life story – A New Future for her.
