Thirteen-year-old Latifa is a Plan International sponsored child from Niger. She already attends one of the newly-built schools Plan has constructed in her community. Her favorite subject is mathematics and she wants to be a doctor when she grows up.
She is a member of the school council, where children can meet to discuss the issues and challenges they face at school and make recommendations for changes. Latifa's mother is a member of a Savings Group initiated with Plan’s support, through which she is able to secure credit and loans to support the family's needs.
