Most of the villages covered by the EU-funded “SEEDS” project are remote and the girls who live there are more likely to drop out of school at an early age. Sevinj (name has been changed to protect privacy) is a resident of a village in the Samukh region. She got married at an early age and was subjected to physical violence by her now ex-husband. Sevinj had no idea how she would survive after her divorce. The project provided her with psychological and legal support, and Sevinj was able to start a new chapter in her life. Currently, Sevinj is building a small tailoring business with a sewing machine donated to her by the project.
