THE NAME

The name, Daughters of Abraham was taken from the book of Luke 13:16 “and ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound…………be loosed from this bond……..”Many girls and women are suffering all kinds of dehumanized conditions that had made them much lesser than who they truly are in the eyes of the creator.Mummy Julie resolved that efforts must be made to draw them up to the lime light where they can raise above every form of degradation to occupy their rightful position in all sphere of life.

MOTIVATION/CONVICTIONS

The Christian moral standard and values in which Mrs. Julie Useni was raised sharpen her character and gave her a sense of what right behavioral pattern should be. Thus, her observation of lost human values, morality, degradation of the women folk and the girl child laid heavy burden on her and she sort for the restoration of the dignity of womanhood. She could not bear seeing the constant sight of young vulnerable girls standing by the street every evening/nights; to solicit for men to pick them at a price for a night.

This phenomenon got her worried and she places herself in the position of the girl’s parents, if these were her daughters, what will she do? The girls in question were teenagers who under normal, circumstances should be in school.

To seek for a quick solution to the problems Mrs. Useni shared her burden with four of her associates and together they came up with the idea of setting up an institution which will cater for these ladies (victims of rape, teenage mothers, commercial sex workers, call-girls and victims of all kinds of violence). The effort to reduce this deadly menace which has eroded the society, culminated in the formation of DOA Foundation.
