Together, we’re helping vulnerable children achieve their full potential
Mary is 14 years old and lives in Zambia with her four siblings.
In the early hours of the morning, Mary used to walk a distance of 7km to get to school from home. This journey took her through thorny bushes and down a lonely, dark trail. Her mother often worried about her safety.
To make sure she wouldn’t miss her first class, Mary would leave home at 4am. And because of her large family, she’d start her morning at 3am to finish the house chores before leaving for school.
Mary was often scared to go to school.
