At 16 years Tula who is the founder of Sprputed Hope gave birth to a son and was rejected by the community, family and the father of the child.
This didn't stop her from having the dream to finish school and accomplish her goals. She went back to school and managed to go to university which the government paid majority of her school fees.
From the challenges she encountered she decided to form a not for profit organization that will empower teenage mother and give them a second chance in life, and this organization will also empower other teenagers to help reduce the number of teenage pregnancy, use of drugs, hiv infections and suicide cases amongst teenagers.
