Rainy

15 year old Rainy is in grade 8.

She lives with both her parents in South Africa, but money is tight; her parents are unemployed and the family survives on the child support grant.

Rainy’s biggest fear is falling pregnant. Unsurprisingly her favourite part of the Bright Futures curriculum are the lessons about Teenage Pregnancy and importance of protected sex.  

She mentions the programme has helped her deal with her periods – when funding allows Bright Futures coordinators distribute sanitary towels to girl at the schools.

‘l learnt how to communicate with my mom and understand changes happening in my body.’ - Rainy, Bright Futures, South Africa 

Although Rainy says she is sometimes lazy and she is worried about money she hopes to grow up and become a doctor.

It costs £35 for a girl like Rainy to take Bright Futures
