299.00

Dare to Learn documents the journeys of 25 exceptionally brave young girls who fought oppression and defied regressive social norms to go to school. This includes stories such as that of Vandana from India, who studied day and night to excel in her studies to prove to her parents that she was a police inspector in the making and not a child bride; Nibras, a Yazidi refugee who stood up against the ISIS to go to school after her family was forced to flee Iraq; or fifteen-year-old Aisha from Nigeria, who was separated from her family by the Boko Haram but held on to her dream of becoming a nurse one day.

Replete with stories of hope, courage and revolution, and with an Introduction by Malala Yousafzai (winner of the Nobel Peace Prize), these are exceptional profiles of some extraordinary girls who dared to change their world by standing up for their right to learn.
