Monica’s aunt didn’t have any money to send her to school, but Monica wanted to learn. Every day she’d sneak into school. As soon as the teacher noticed, they chased her out. Most days Monica sat outside in the dirt playing with rocks to pass the time. When she entered COTN’s program, Monica finally got the chance to show everyone what she is capable of. Find out how Monica is changing the future of Uganda today.
