VIDEO: The Walking Classrooms of Marsabit
Nagirasia Lengima, a 16 year old girl who lives in Marsabit, Kenya, dropped out of school at a young age. She didn't think school was of any use, and spent her days looking after the family's goats, doing household chores and looking after her two children. This is not unusual in Marsabit, where less than 15% of girls over the age of six have ever attended school. Today, she attends classes on a daily basis, and explains that her knowledge is very important to her.
