Hawa is one of 15 siblings. Her father is blind. From the age of eight, instead of going to school, she spent her time begging on the streets.
A Street Child social worker met Hawa on the streets last year. Through our Girls Speak Out program, we gave her mother a grant and supported her to set up a sustainable business, so she could afford to send Hawa and her siblings to go to school. We also helped Hawa with a uniform and learning materials.
“I want to say thank you to Street Child supporters for what you have done. I want to be a lawyer so I can help the people of my country.”
