Categories: Shorts

In a country where a high school education is generally reserved for boys, Hoctavia is one of 31 children, most of whom dropped out of school. Ruth lives in a tiny apartment in one of Kampala's poorest neighborhoods with her mother and three siblings. Graduating from high school is the only way they can lift themselves and their families out of poverty. Like millions of girls in Africa who will never move beyond primary school, their challenges are not unique -- their journey is.

Absolutely inspiring -- an object lesson in the value of education and how we dare not take it for granted.
