In Adama's Shadow

In her shadow: Life through Adama's eyes

Our National Director, Antoinette Habinshuti, meets Adama, a committed girl who lives in the commune of Dabo, to put herself in her shadow for the day. They discuss the participation of girls in community well-being and in addressing other issues that concern them.
