Dyness is a sixteen year old girl from Mazimbu, Morogoro. She was living with her handicapped sister and her mother and father in Mazimbu. In 2005 her mother died of HIV/AIDS. One day her father came home drunk and raped and impregnated her sister, who was then taken to stay at her Uncle's house. Shortly after that incident Dyness too was raped by her father.

Dyness was takent to NEREFO by one of the community leaders for education and psychosocial support. NEREFO was able to pay school fees for Dyness and support her until she was found pregnant when entering Form II of Secondary school. At this time Dyness ran away from Morogoro and was later found in Dar Es Salaam. She was taken back to Morogoro and lived with a foster parent until she gave birth to her son Brian. She decided to attend school again but was refused first because of her child.

NEREFO was able to persuade the Regional and Minicipal Education Officer to reconsider her for school enrolment and she will restart Form II at Tubuyu secondary school this year. We were also able to find a new foster parent for her and through PSS meetings with guardians, relatives and foster parents succeeded to reunify Dyness to her relatives who stay with her sister who also agreed to take care of Dyness son.
