Some 29 million girls aged between 6 and 15 do not go to school. Many of them will never enter a classroom because when a girl at the age of 10 has never attended a school, the probability is very high that she will never visit one. The few lucky ones who can go to school will receive a training for a maximum of six years.
In today’s world, extremists are particularly interested in destroying the life of these school girls, their families and their villages. In addition, there is the extreme poverty, which forces many girls to give up their schooling in the hope of a better life with work.
EDUCATION MEANS VERY MUCH:
WOMEN WITH EDUCATION ARE OFTEN HEALTHIER, HAVE FEWER CHILDREN, HAVE A BETTER INCOME AND HELP THEIR CHILDREN TO MORE HEALTH AND EDUCATION. ALL THIS CAN FREE INDIVIDUAL FAMILIES, BUT ALSO WHOLE VILLAGES FROM THE POVERTY.
In addition to social hurdles that hinder education, the learning conditions in the schools are not optimal: Often more than 50 children are in one class and three or more children share a textbook. In the Sahel zone, only 20% of schools have electricity and almost half have access to drinking water. Schools with no toilets or mixed toilets also represent a health and safety risk for girls.
