Rahimata (17, Burkina Faso)
Education and vocational training

Rahimata’s world fell apart after her father died unexpectedly when she was a young child. Her family lost everything they had, but they didn’t give up, and she managed to complete her education – an opportunity that she wishes every child had, through school or vocational training.
