Girls education is an issue that needs attention all over the world and wherever we go it’s playing out to mixed results. The problem seems to be keeping girls in school as they reach puberty and breaking down social barriers to girls education, especially within certain cultures and religions. But in this private school in Uganda we witnessed girls learning right alongside boys in every grade level. The assignment was to show just that and to make sure that classes weren’t “assembled” for the cameras we arrived unannounced. As the students worked in this crowded room they did their best to ignore the camera. This girl in particular was hard at work and never looked up once and I’m glad. Because as she did her work we did ours and it was exactly the shot we were looking for.
