Why educate girls..?
“More than 49 million girls are out of primary and secondary school in sub Saharan Africa, with 31 million of them are out of secondary education, undermining their rights and limiting their opportunities. Poverty is the greatest barrier to accessing education.” Human Rights Watch, 2017
“In sub-Saharan Africa, 40% of girls marry before the age of 18, and African countries account for 15 out of the 20 countries with the highest rates of child marriage globally.” Human Rights Watch, 2017
“In South Africa, girls and women are accorded lower social status and find themselves under the control and authority of men. The high levels of gender-based violence and the higher HIV infection rates among girls and women are tragic consequences of female disempowerment.” UNICEF
“In South Africa, girls and women are four times more likely to be HIV-positive than boys and men.” UNICEF
“Girls with 8 years of education are 4 times less likely to be married as children.” One Girl, 2017
“For every year a girl stays in school, her income will increase by at least 10-20%.” One Girl, 2017
