ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS GO TO SCHOOL

Dr. Kakenya Ntaiya: CNN Hero, UN Youth Advisor, One of Newsweek’s 150 Women Who Shake the World — all she wanted to do was go to school (with Linda Lockhart and Mary Mwende, of the Global Give Back Circle). At age 12, Dr. Ntaiya wanted to go to school so badly that, instead of getting married, she agreed to undergo the tradition of female genital mutilation. She later returned to start her own school for girls (with Pape Gaye of Intrahealth and Gannon Gillespie of Tostan).  (Watch Part 2 here.)

“I’ve never been affected so much by an interview as I have been with Kakenya Ntaiya. This woman is truly amazing, brave, tough, smart, caring — all the attributes of a real hero.” — Stan Emert, Rainmakers TV
