My name is Musong Gladys Mah Njokem born in a polygamous family in Mbengwi a small town in the Northwest region of Cameroon, My father had the desire to educate me up to university but the means was not available because of the large family he had,He encouraged his friends to send their girl children to school of which most of them did,Due to the fact that the family was large i had to stop school after my secondary school.
I got married then at the age of 18yrs had my only child at 19 my husband had to continue to educte me until i had my Grade one teacher's certificate
We were three girls from my mother the last one died leaving 5 children that I'm talking care of presently the third one (a girl has the GCE A/L certificate and no job the forth a girl again is in the university in the second year while the last of them is in secondary school.
My dream is to see these girls to go to higher heights in their education they don't have a father nor mother any more but i pray that as they are willing to study i will help them.
Though my income is small i have resorted to do farming in order to make them achieve their dreams
My cry is that the girl child should have abetter place in the society
