"It is a struggle every day for my kids to go to school...My wish is to see my children succeed." - Mabinty's mother
Mabinty Camara’s father died this past summer. He was the only caretaker who was able to bring enough food for the family. Now Mabinty, along with her sister and 2 brothers, rely on their mother’s small food trade in the city. She and her sister - through the support of outside help - were able to integrate into public school, but their mother stated that it is a struggle every day for her kids to go to school. These girls are all exposed to risks of prostitution. With support, they will be able to afford education, some basic furniture for their home, and be able to stay off the streets.
