Shogofa is just 12 years old but she has big ambitions. When she grows up she wants to be a judge so she can represent the women of Afghanistan.
However, a few years ago, children in her village couldn’t even go to school. During the conflict with the Taliban, the area had been on the frontline and many mines had been left behind. When the fighting ended, the residents began to return home but it was too dangerous to build a new school. Children had to have lessons at home but this was very expensive as the families needed to pay for the teachers themselves.
The community was therefore very happy when HALO came to the village to make the land safe.
