Pirias Jeniffer Kiok, 17 sets her Bible on the study table of her dormroom at the Tasaru Safehouse for Girls. Jeniffer arrived in Tasaru at the age of 14 a few days short of becoming someone's wife. Feeling betrayed and disrespected by her disobedience, her parents do not wish to see or hear of her. Her faith, she says, is a great source of strength and she continues to look forward to the day when she will be reunited with her family.
