"Back home I used to go to school too, but the last three years before we escaped we were too scared. Boko Haram would kill you if you did,” says Fanta, 14.
The extremist group killed her father and brother and kidnapped her sister in their village in Nigeria last year. Since then, Fanta has been living in a refugee settlement in Cameroon.
Despite the horrific difficulties she and her family have faced, Fanta has returned to school.
“It is my joy,” she says.
A school is a place where girls can learn, play, make friends, heal and access medical help. For girls like Fanta in Nigeria, and around the world, education can change their lives.
