Maya’s* story through a translator
“I love school because I learn manners, culture and respect. I learn everything.”
“Finish your studies because it is so beneficial. It teaches you culture, manners, reading and writing.
“My favourite subject is Arabic. Our house is close to the school, so it takes me five minutes to arrive here. I don’t care about going through the dust or sun or anything else to get here because I love studying at school. It teaches me reading and writing.
“At my school there are no female teachers and the male teachers aren’t teaching because they need to get paid.”
“My sister stopped going to school and now studies at home because there weren’t many girls in her class and no female teachers.”
