Woman graduates as a teacher with the support of Plan International's Girls Access to Education P
Fudia has now completed her training to become a graduate teacher

‘Today I’m a graduate teacher’

Fudia, 29, had always dreamt of becoming a teacher. After her father died, she was forced to leave school and was sold into marriage with a controlling man.

Plan International opened a programme in Sierra Leone, training marginalised women to become volunteer teachers. Against her husband’s wishes, Fudia enrolled, and in April 2021, graduated alongside 38 other female teachers. “Although my husband later divorced me because of my ambitions, I’m glad that Plan International opened a pathway for my career development,’ she explains, “This is a dream come true for me. Instead of being a school dropout, today I’m a graduate teacher.”

Your gift today could support women like Fudia to complete their education and fulfil their dreams.

Girls raise their hands in a classroom in Ghana
Supporting young mothers return to the classroom could be a lifeline for girls like Christiana*, 15. (*This name has been changed for safeguarding reasons.)

Supporting young mothers return to the classroom

With 10 million young girls at risk of child marriage and pregnancy due to coronavirus, providing young mothers with the support they need to continue their education is vital.

Christiana* gave birth to a baby girl during Ghana’s lockdown when she was just 15. “I decided with my parents that I would not be returning to school because of the stress I was going through looking after the baby as a new mother,” she explains. When schools reopened, Plan International’s Making Ghanaian Girls Great project helped Christiana return to class. Now she can balance the demands of motherhood and still attend classes with her friends.

Your donation today could provide a lifeline to young mothers who dream of going back to school.
