HABIBA:ASPIRING TO BE A DOCTOR IN GARISSA COUNTY

Habiba Aden Mohamed is 15 years old, and with support from Save the Children’s Cash Transfer Programme, she is in standard seven at Balambala primary school in Garissa County.

 

Located in North East Kenya, Garissa County has a predominantly Somali ethnic population. Due to a number of cultural traditions, a large percentage of girls don’t get the opportunity to go to school. These include early marriage, which can see girls married as early as 10 years old; a tendency to prioritise educating boys; and a reliance on girls to substitute family incomes.
