Main shooting locations: Kabuicha, Kamasikie – Birwa Chiefdom, Sierra Leone
Main sequences: Just three years ago, the Kabuita Community School in Sierra Leone was a simple grass hut and few children – and almost no girls – ever turned up for class. UNICEF and its partners are helping build new buildings, training teachers and encouraging changing attitudes towards girls' education. Now, the school is packed with pupils every day, and more often than not, girls actually outnumber boys.
