Her Message is Clear: Education First, Marriage Second
In Niger, almost one-third of all school-age girls will be married before they are fifteen. When a girl does wed at such a young age, she will typically drop out of school to focus more on her family. However, Aïchatou Mohamed, like a growing number of girls in Niger, has chosen to stay in school. Aïchatou recognizes the importance of an education, and doesn't foresee dropping out any time in the near future.
