The Girl Who Buried Her Dreams in a Can
Hardback. All Tererai ever wanted was an education. But in Zimbabwe, education for girls was hatigone - impossible. So Tererai taught herself to read and write with her brother’s schoolbooks and solved math problems while watching cattle graze. When Tererai became a wife and mother at a very young age, she wrote her goals on a scrap of paper and buried them in a can - an ancient ritual that reminded Tererai that she couldn’t give up on her dreams.
