Hannah Godefa is just 16 years old. But she is busy defending the right of all girls and women to be educated. The young woman serves as a National Goodwill Ambassador to Ethiopia for UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund. And she is urging the U.N. to make a plan to end the discrimination that keeps girls out of classrooms. Recently, she spoke in Geneva to the Committee on Elimination of Discrimination against Women. She talked about increasing girls’ chances for education and protecting them from sexual and other abuse. Hannah Godefa was born in Canada to Ethiopian parents. She was appointed to her UNICEF job in January of 2013. Since then, she has visited Ethiopia and other countries in Africa. She describes the purpose of her work as speaking out for the millions of girls who are not attending school. Ms. Godefa notes that some girls do not have a school available to attend. Others have family responsibilities that may keep them from school. The young UNICEF ambassador believes cultural barriers and economic considerations also limit girls’ chances. Sometimes parents must choose whether to send their boys or girls to school. Ms. Godefa became friends with a local girl and wanted to keep communicating with her when she returned home. But Ms. Godefa’s parents told her that the other girl did not have pencils or paper to write letters.Their daughter reacted by establishing the Pencil Mountain Project. She says the project has provided more than 500,000 objects, including writing instruments, for use in schools.
