In her chat with BBC, Amina explained that poverty was one of the reasons the girls do not attend or drop out of school, so she decided to empower them with skills which will help them generate an income while they are at school.

Even though public schools are free, there are a lot of costs like the cost of books and uniforms which can become a financial burden but with the skills, they can use cover their basic expenses and support themselves through school.
