Satara, 21, is a student from Gwiwa in Jigawa. "I wanted to become a midwife in order to save women and children," she says. Her father, who works in healthcare, encouraged her to join the school.
In Spring 2012, the British Government launched a new scheme – Women for Health – to support 7,000 girls and women to train as health workers in northern Nigeria by 2016. The new skills they learn will help save the lives of thousands of mums, babies and children.
