Have you ever thought what life is like for girls in Africa who don’t get the chance to go to school? For Chisanga, a secondary school pupil in rural Zambia, it’s something she thinks about a lot.
When you set a child on the path to education in rural Africa, something remarkable happens: she transforms her world.
With the chance to go to school, she begins a journey that will open up opportunities she never imagined. And as an adult she will be able to do something as powerful as you: she will be able to give to others.

“I had a stack of opportunities as a kid and young woman that I took for granted and really didn't take advantage of them. I want other girls to have some of those opportunities so they have the confidence to do the amazing things that we, as women, are fully capable of doing.”
