Tassy tackles impact of teen pregnancy and child marriage on girls' education
In this video, Tassy (17) narrates how teenage pregnancies and child marriage led to her writing of Grade Nine examinations as the only girl in her grade, after other girls her age dropped out of school. Despite failing her Grade Nine exams the first time around, Tassy did not lose hope. Empowered, optimistic, and now in Grade Ten, she urges her fellow students –especially girls– to prioritise education and stay in school.
