As teenagers in the slums quickly find out, the responsibilities of adulthood come around all too soon.
When a child in the family is old enough to earn, pressure to give up education and find a job is very common.
CBC offers support to students and their families, encouraging teenagers to pursue their educational dreams as far as possible, whether it is through college, vocational training or apprenticeships.
Today, we have graduate students who are working in law firms, banking, recruitment, construction, photography, PR, teaching and engineering. We also have students who are self-employed.
