This National Geographic picture story about eight surf girls will warm your heart…
Early each morning, rain or shine, these girls leave their homes in traditional villages and make their way to the beach, where they work selling jewelry, chips, and eggs until late into the night. Their families depend on their income to survive.
But thanks to a surfer/lifeguard and his American wife, these young girls are learning to speak English, catch waves, and dream big in a conservative Muslim country where child marriages are common.
Just look at the smiles on their faces when they’re with their surfboards, in the water.
