Jenni understands the true meaning of overcoming adversity and has used her life lessons to make a difference to the world – she is a woman who lives her life out loud.
After surviving years of domestic violence as a teenager, Jenni found her strength and escaped from her turmoil. She made a promise to herself to not only rebuild her life and recognise her own self-worth but to also support others who were living with abuse.
YANA Project aims to work 121 with girls and boys who have directly been affected by gang related violence, sexual grooming, exploitation, domestic violence and abuse.
The long term purpose of the program is early to help young people to recognise and accept their self worth, build their confidence and recognise situations that pose risk and reduce the long term harm.
Partnerships include Juvenis, South Central Youth, Lambeth Social Care, Schools across London and Divert Youth.
