Shani (12 y/o) is a smart student who goes to school with great pleasure. Her sister is chronically ill and therefore she is determined to become a nurse or doctor.
Shani’s parents work very hard so that her brother can attend secondary school. For Shani, unfortunately this will not be possible, there simple isn’t enough money. She is devastated that she can’t continue on to secondary school but has to start working.
Shani does not give up hope and believes that her dream of being a nurse can come true…

Investing in Women and Girls
Women produce half the world’s food, put in two-thirds of the world’s working hours, and yet make only 10 percent of the world’s income! That’s why women and girls are at the heart of ChildsLife community-based efforts.
Recognizing that women and girls suffer disproportionately from poverty, ChildsLife focuses on improving basic education, increasing access to clean water and expanding economic opportunity through business grants and micro-loans. Empowered women contribute to the health and productivity of whole families and communities.
