Nadegen is 15 years old and comes from a small village on the countryside, near Kpalimé. She can’t afford to continue going to school, because her father died six years ago and her mother is unemployed. Now, Nadegen hopes to become a professional tailor, just like her aunt.

“Je veux faire la formation en couture, parce que je n’ai pas la possibilité de fréquenter l’école.“
(I want to take up the apprenticeship in tailoring, because I don’t have the possibility to go to school.)
