Sokoto, Nigeria, 7 July 2010 – When Dr. Gianfranco Rotigliano, UNICEF Regional Director for West and Central Africa, visited Nigeria in June, he met Rahina Husseini, a community mobiliser at the Kundus Primary School in Kundus village in the Rabah Local Government Area of Sokoto State in northwest Nigeria.

Rahina Husseini is 58 years old and one of seven women on Kundus Primary School’s 29-member management committee.

Her passion is to go house-to-house in the village to make sure all the girls are enrolled at school.
