My name is Binta (not real name). I am 19years old.
Towards the end of my secondary school education, i was going to drop out of school because my parents couldn’t afford my fees.
But that was when GiST- Girls should Thrive Initiative started the Safe Space program at my school and they supported me to take my final exams. They also empowered me with digital and Entrepreneurship skills to help me support myself financially.
Now i have gained admission into higher institution and I’m presently studying law.
Some girls in my community don’t even get to go to school, so being able to come here on such a program has been such a privilege to me.
