        Time for School | Benin: Nanavi (2006)

        In this video segment from Wide Angle, Nanavi faces many challenges to attend school. Nanavi was filmed in 2003 when at the age of nine she was recruited to attend school as part of a nationwide effort to educate the girls of Benin in West Africa and again in 2006 at age twelve. Between these time periods dynamic changes occurred in Nanavi’s family. Because her father became ill and died, the family's savings dwindled and they were left with little income. Meanwhile, Nanavi’s mother struggles to keep Nanavi in school. With support from her family and community, Nanavi pursues her education as she was encouraged to do by her father. For more about Nanavi, see "Time for School | Wide Angle: Nanavi (2003)."
