Education means freedom

I just wanted to tell you, that it is so difficult for girls like me to get an education. without the support of People First it would not be possible. i am one of many girls going to college sponsored by the Trust. I am studying computer sciences. When i started in the village school run by people first it was beyond my imagining that i would one day go to college. Thank you for supporting us. Education gives us the frredom in life we could never have otherwise. the freedom to be independent, the freedom to choose a better life for us and in time our children.
