“She must be a courageous; determined girl; one in a million teenage mothers,” I thought to myself before approaching her for a chat.

EYES glued to the presenter on the stage, she keenly follows the session; alongside her other adolescent peers.

The group of about six girls is clad in green dresses, white shocks and black shoes. But there is one striking issue about one of the girls. Much as she is a school girl, in a uniform, she is breastfeeding a baby.

The sight of a fellow school girl breastfeeding does not seem to baffle the other school girls. Instead they are supportive as they take turns to carry the baby.

“She must be a courageous; determined girl; one in a million teenage mothers,” I thought to myself before approaching her for a chat.

This is a scene, at Nwoya Girls Academy in Gulu, a Northern Uganda district. A unique school at that!
