“One major issue affecting the girl child today is lack of education. When it comes to female genital mutilation, equal opportunities, domestic violence and sexual rights, it all boils down to lack of education. Hence, my team and I are identifying a girl child from each school in different communities who are underprivileged to ensure she gets an education to the university level and this we hope to sustain.”
