It's never too late to learn

In Senegal, girls are often expected to marry, have children and look after the home from an early age. Astou was 15 when she dropped out of school.

Through our training programme, we're giving Astou and girls like her the skills and confidence to succeed. 

"I left school because I had no one to warn me of the risks of dropping out. So I’m telling other girls about the importance of studying and saying no to early marriage."

The fundraising money you donate to Plan International UK can help other girls like Astou.
