How your sponsorship helps

Mary is a nurse from northern Ghana, where she helps deliver babies. Growing up Mary's family were not able to pay for her to take her school exams. Thankfully, Mary's father was able to secure a small loan through an ActionAid funded women's group, giving Mary the opportunity to undertake her exams and pursue her dream of becoming a nurse.

Mary's skills in her local community are essential, where health care facilities are basic. She now attends talks in her village, arranged by ActionAid and inspires local girls, telling them "If I was able to make it, you can also make it."
