Mariam

She’s like a lot of 12-year-old girls. Mariam likes to read and sing and eat pizza (though she doesn’t get that often). But unlike most girls in Tanzania, Mariam wants to aim high to become a doctor. Female doctors are rare in a country where girls are encouraged to work in gender normative roles. At LOHADA, we work to keep girls in school, and will pay for their education through college. So Mariam can reach for her dreams.
