Being a girl in a developing country is rarely easy. Poverty often has a more destructive effect on girls, who are more easily excluded from education and therefore from remunerating activities. In some areas, cultural prejudices against girls minimise their chances to access a good education and escape poverty.
It takes the extraordinary willpower of a girl like Balkhis, and a little help from Aiducation, to break the cycle of poverty and start building future for girls in local communities.
