HAWA, THE ASPIRING LAWYER WHO USED TO BEG ON THE STREETS
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.”
