LAST month, we teamed up with Comic Relief and told you about the lives of students in Malawi. Now, the students of Watford Primary have seen what their money went towards – and how it changed lives.

This one’s about Olivia and her class.

Olivia was just 14-years-old when she got married and dropped out of school. A project funded by Comic Relief and UK aid and run by Concern Worldwide, and their partners, worked closely with Olivia and her family to help her leave the marriage and support her back into school. This fast action meant Olivia, who dreams of becoming a teacher, only missed three months of school and was excited to return to her classmates last month.
