Hadja’s story

Conakry, Guinea

« Parallel to his studies, Hadja, 18, is engaged in community life in the protection of children and women »

“Hadja talks to Maïmouna, who has been sexually abused, and her mother at a cafe in the Kaloum neighborhood.

As the founder of the Club des jeunes filles, an association that creates a framework for consultation on all the problems encountered by young girls, she collects information in order to go and plead the case with the authorities.

“My father had a terrible childhood, he grew up on the streets, that marked me. It is her story that influenced me and boosted me to engage with children and prioritize school. “

Hadja educates the students at her school in the morning, before class starts, about violence against women and the importance of reporting rape if someone witnesses it.”
