“She’s not coming back to school again.” These searing words are branded into the mind of Annetta Paps-King, co-founder of charity Sponsor a Gambian Girl. At the age of 14 her Gambian friend was ripped from the education system to get married to an older man and live a life of servitude.
This practice still takes place in some Gambian tribes. In this episode Annetta details some of the harrowing experiences some girls endure and how the charity is helping to develop empowered, educated and liberated women leaders of the future.
