We have been surprised to see Flora this afternoon among the best ivoirian girls under 18 years old which are in preparation for an international competition.
We met Flora earlier this year. She left school in grade 7 because her mother was not able to pay for her school fees.
She discovered basketball 18 months ago and the court became an escape and a way to make new friends. She even began taking French lessons in night school.
We are glad to see that basket-ball is having a positive impact in her life. We will start a new project in Abidjan next month. We are excited to discover and highlight others' inspiring stories.
