CAN YOU SEE ME? Ami, 12
Sierra Leone, March 2011: Ami Musa carries unsafe water from a pond, the only water source in her village of Pendembu. Ami’s parents died; she lives with an uncle who cannot afford school fees for her or her three siblings. Ami left school after the second grade and would like to be a nurse, but even if her family could pay the fees, there are neither enough schools nor teachers for eligible Sierra Leonean children.
