The world was greeted last week with the news that two of the abducted Chibok girls, who escaped Boko Haram captivity, had graduated High School in the U.S.
The girls are not stopping there, they want to go to college.
Our correspondent Detola Ademola reports from Washington D.C. that three years ago when the girls identified as Debbi and Grace escaped from Boko Haram den in Northern Nigeria, they did not know then what the future held.
But the two have finally graduated high school and are pursuing new dreams in America. Their guardian in the U.S, Emmanuel Ogebe, says their dreams might be short lived because of funding.
He appealed to the Nigerian government to support the efforts of NGO’s trying to help the Chibok girls.
The name Boko Haram means “Western Education is Forbidden,” but the attack on Chibok has made Debbie and grace passionate advocates for the value of education.
