Only 11% of all girls in Karamoja finish primary school. Instead of going to school, girls are married off, sometimes as early as 13 or 14 years of age. Every year many girls manage to escape marriage, circumcision, child trafficking and child labour. Education is their only chance to escape poverty and build a better future.
CCA sponsors girls who want to make something of their lives. Including Margaret, a smart and energetic girl from Kotido in Karamoja. Watch the video and get to know Margaret. She will start her nursing education this month.
