"When I was fifteen, I was raped by three boys while competing at a gymnastics tournament. I was so ashamed, that I stood on a train track, and waited for the train to come. At the last moment, I tried to jump away. I woke up after a month. It was the middle of the night, and I could immediately tell that something was missing. I started feeling all over my body, and that’s when I realized that I’d lost my arm. Now I counsel teenagers who have been diagnosed with HIV. I’m normally the first to meet with them after they get their results. I try to explain to them that there’s a way out of even the most impossible situations."

"I used to have a dream, but it’s been blown away by the winds of this place," says Heba, a 17-year-old living in the Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan. This week, as students across the globe settled into their new classes and caught up with old classmates, Heba and 31 million other girls were not among them.The kidnapping of more than 200 Nigerian schoolgirls in April underscored the dangers girls face and reinforced what education activists are going up against. While the situation is grim, the push for equal access to education has being reignited through the work of women and girls’ rights advocates like Malala Yousafzai.
"The power of education frightens [extremists]. Let us pick up our books and pens. They are our most powerful weapons," Malala said in her address to the United Nations last year.

More than a year of unprecedented violence has plunged Central African Republic (CAR) into perhaps the most unstable and bloodiest era of its history. Armed groups called anti-balaka, comprised of Christians and animists who were initially organized to fight local crime, are seeking revenge mostly against the Muslim minority for a cycle of looting, torture and killing that began after the mainly Muslim rebel coalition Séléka seized power in March 2013. Anti-balaka refuses to lay down their arms. Instead, they hunt and kill Muslims who remain in areas under their control or those who attempt to flee.

Photographer William Daniels has been awarded a 2014 Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography for his project ‘CAR in Chaos.’ Read more about William and the project here.
