Loveness' story was kindly shared by our member ActionAid in Malawi.
"When I was in Form 1 I was doing very well, my grades were always good I always hoped that after school I would become a nurse because I wanted to help those who needed help.
I was really heart broken when I realised I was pregnant because I knew that my future depended on being able to go to school.
"What I think of my future is that without education I won't have any future at all, my life will always be filled with struggle."
ActionAid is working to encourage girls to stay in school and is helping young mothers like Loveness get back into education. Learn more about their work worldwide.
