Investing in girls’ education transforms communities, countries and the entire world. Girls who receive an education are less likely to marry young and more likely to lead healthy, productive lives. They earn higher incomes, participate in the decisions that most affect them, and build better futures for themselves and their families.
Our community Clubs give us the platform to speak to girls about the importance and benefits of Girls’ education. Educating Girls strengthens economies and reduces inequality. It contributes to more stable, resilient societies that give all individuals including boys and men the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
Barriers to girls’ education such as poverty, child marriage and gender-based violence vary among countries and communities. Poor families often favour boys when investing in education which is very unfortunate. We are working directly with parents and local leaders to sensitize them about the importance of educating all children including Girls. We also encourage them to ensure that Girls are in position to complete their education because it’s the greatest investment they can ever make.
We also encourage Home Learning for children who are still held home due to the effects of COVID19. We are working in partnership with Teachers to extend their services to such children during the weekend so that they don’t completely lose out. This is the reason why we are calling upon well wishers who wish to sponsor some children’s education to connect with us and we walk the journey together.
A proper education sets people up to grow personally, professionally, and socially. It can awaken joy, curiosity and a deep desire to solve problems and help others. Plus, teaching a student can inspire them to pursue leadership roles and positively impact those around them.
