Meet Joice, a determined student from Alagados in Salvador, Brazil. In a community where the average income for a family of four to eight people is just $200 a month, education can make all the difference in helping to reduce poverty. So the fact that Joice comes from a semi-literate family but is now attending university makes her an important role model in her community.
Directed and produced by Sylvia Johnson.
