More from Sr. Margarita

by | May 24, 2024

Part 1

In the remote mountains of Mexico, Sister Margarita met a young girl, who was hiding from her father, after he tried to sell her to a man for a six pack of beer. Fearing for her safety, the girl and her mother pleaded with the Sisters for a place at school.


Part 2

In this second part of our International Women’s Day interview, Sister Margarita speaks about the need for equality of opportunity for girls, how traditional roles keep girls from education, and how receiving an education gives girls a chance to discover their talents and skills.
