On a cool evening after school, Chantal strolled down the main street towards her village centre. It was an average day; in her last year of secondary school, Chantal dreamt of finishing her studies and becoming a doctor, or maybe a policewoman.

Uwizeye cherishes his two-year-old daughter, Anita. Each morning, Uwizeye brings Anita to a UNICEF-supported early childhood development centre on the tea plantation where he works. While Uwizeye works on the plantation, Anita plays with other children under the supervision of trained caregivers.
