I had an incredible meeting with the President of Sierra Leone on Saturday to convey your outrage on his government's policy barring pregnant girls from school.

In response to our call to end the ban, President Koroma made a promise to meet with me again when I return to Sierra Leone in 2 weeks to consider a proposal - that will not only enable the girls to return to school but ensure that their health, social and other needs are adequately met.

I hope to present that proposal alongside your signatures - but he needs to know that we are not relenting until this is a reality.

Please share our petition with your friends and networks, that there is an opportunity to make a real difference - and it's urgent.

Thanks for your support - we've now got 2 weeks to build our movement and keep the pressure on!
