Portrait of Pascal
Education for girls

“I am a boy, but I fight for education for girls and for them to get to stay in school.”

“I also want to show how girls who work in the households of others suffer. Some girls are subjected to abuse by their employers. If they break a glass, the cost of it is deducted from their wages, which are already very low. They are carrying out tough work without getting a single day to rest. They wash the dishes, wash clothes, prepare food, take the children to school. After having read The Globe I know that their rights are being violated. Here in Burkina Faso we have a telephone number, 116, for children to call free of charge if they are victims of violence.”
Pascal, 16, Collège Sainte Collette
