For Somali girl Halima Mohmoud, 11, a dream came true recently. She is now enrolled in school despite the hardships she and her family go through every day.
“This is my first time in school. My parents are pastoralists and live in the village,” said Halima in an interview with UNICEF. “Education is important to me because it will help in future.”
However, many other children in Somalia – like Halima’s eight siblings – do not go to school.
