In Sudan, education has no age limit. The story of Rumana

|

Meet Rumana, a 26-year-old woman from Sudan. She just joined seventh grade. 

As a child, Rumana didn’t go to school and so she didn’t learn to read or write.

When she became a mother, she realized that she couldn’t help her children with their homework or answer their questions. So she decided to learn and go to school.
