Alice Saisha: advocating for change

Growing up in rural Zambia with her hard-working widowed mother of ten, Alice worked as a maid and sold cassava leaves to help buy food and school supplies. There was never enough money. Once destined to be a child bride, Alice’s life was transformed when she was selected to receive a CAMFED scholarship.
