In rural Zambia girls face many problems that put their health at risk, prevents them from getting a good education and fulfilling their potential. The cycle of poverty starts early and they are most vulnerable during adolescence. Born into poor families many girls fail to stay in school; many are tempted to have sex for money - just to survive or buy simple things, like a pen for school; or are married as early as 13 or 14 because their family cannot afford to feed them. Many are physically, sexually and mentally abused by neighbours, members of their extended family or people in authority. By their late teens they often have children, no husband and may have an STD or AIDS.
