esteem

only 15 percent of school-age girls in senegal attend middle school. later in life, there are only 6 literate adult women for every 10 literate men.

 

they need schools to go to, and the freedom from child labor to get there.

 

because when they go, they love it. and when they love it, they learn. and when they love learning, they will change their world.

 

12 year-old girl on break from afternoon classes in thiès, senegal. one of the blessed few.
