In a region where less than 50% of girls finish primary school, this is a huge accomplishment!
Now, 4 years later, they are starting their final year of secondary school. And, they are working towards overcoming even larger odds. In the area around Mbita, less than 20% of girls complete high school!! All, except 1, of these girls are still in school!
Each of these girls have overcome many obstacles and challenges to reach this far.
And because of and in spite of those challenges...
they are tough
they are hard-working
they are focused
they are persistent
they have hope
they are Suba Lakers!
