"For this week's #NascentOnTheGround, we are traveling to the North-West region of Cameroon to meet Zuwairatu, a passionate reader enrolled in Nascent's Mobile Reading Program (MRP).

Zuwairatu had to drop out of school in 2017 due to the ongoing socio-political crisis, and the MRP became her only lifeline to an education. She is now one of the most active participants in the program, often collecting books to read weeks before the planned check-out days and even assisting library managers with tasks such as writing down dates and the titles of books.

She has become a strong advocate of the program and understands the power of a good education in changing her future:

'I used to think very much only about who I will get married to and how many children I will have. Now, I want this war to end so that I can continue my education and give my children a better life in the future. I would like to be a nurse.'"
