Girl Child Education in Ghana
Grace (13), pictured on 15 May 2014, is in Form 1 in the Volta Region of Ghana. She says science is her favourite subject, because it allows her to learn about the human body. As her school has neither water nor sanitary facilites, she and her fellow students take turns to bring water to school. When it is her turn, she carries a bucket of water on the 30 minute walk from her home to school. If the water runs out, which happen frequently, she may have to go home to get more, which may mean missing class.
