One brave girl in Zimbabwe is empowered to fight child marriage and go to school
HARARE, Zimbabwe – Fourteen-year-old Shamiso Nyamutamba has endured more than her share of tragedy. When she was three, her mother died. Two years later, her father also passed away. She went to live with an abusive uncle, and was nearly forced to marry an older man. She has only recently found peace – and the promise of a better future – with the help of a unique programme designed to empower adolescent girls, in the rural Mbire District of Zimbabwe.
