Women Empowered – wouli

Wouli, 7
Atti Tomefa, Togo

Even though Wouli has to spend four hours a day fetching water and firewood, she religiously does her homework. Working with her best friend Atinyo, she spends two hours after school practicing her language and math assignments on a chalkboard her father attached to the side of her house. Many uneducated children in Wouli’s village fall victim to child traffickers with promises good jobs. The children typically end up as indentured household servants to individuals in Togo’s capital, Lome. With few exceptions their families never see them again. CARE is supporting education and awareness programs in the villages of Togo to address this prevalent problem.
