Rising from the Ashes: Helping Educate Girls in Sierra Leone

Video of the week

When Sierra Leone's civil war ended in 2002, many children couldn't go to school because the buildings had been destroyed during the conflict. More than 10 years later, schools have been rebuilt and a lot of children are back in school, especially girls. With support from the Global Partnership for Education, the Sierra Leone government is giving financial incentives to families so that they send girls to class instead of keeping them at home for household chores.
