In Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world, 10% of people have HIV and more than 50% of Malawi girls are married before they reach 18. Kachindamato knows the value of education and the dangers of child marriage so she decided to make a change by outlawing child marriage in 2015.

Sheldrick Wildlife Trust: Haven for Elephants & Rhinos
The people that work at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, have extraordinary dedication to orphaned elephants and rhinos! Many of these orphans have been traumatized, after watching their parents killed. When they arrive, each orphan gets caretakers that stay with them 24/7, including sleeping with them. The loving keepers become substitute "parents", giving the babies the best possible chance of survival, and good mental health, and the best chance to return to the wild some day.
