GIRL CHILD EDUCATION

By Aisha Mukulu

Education is a Human right that helps to impart more knowledge into people all over the world. It’s so hurting that the largest numbers of Girls are denied education.

The challenges faced by Girls are denial of employment opportunities and inequalities in schools, and even in homes.

Perhaps the fear is that Girl child education can lead to neglect of parents since the Girls become emancipated. But, without Girl child education, the effects are:

  • It leads to an increase in the number of illiterates in the country; and
  • It leads to poverty.

The solutions to the above challenges are:

  • The Government should put strict laws to challenge those who do not want to educate girls;
  • Girls and boys should be treated equally and fairly by their Parents; and
  • The Government should provide counseling services and free government schools for children from a poor background.

GIRL CHILD EDUCATION

By Sharon

Education is a human right and a fulfilling experience that helps girls reach their potential.

Most girls in the world do not have this opportunity. In my country Uganda, this is due to cultural belief, religious practices, ignorance and, the worst of all, poverty.

Girls without education opportunity face a lot of problems like:

  • Isolation;
  • Early pregnancies;
  • Early marriages; and
  • High illiteracy rates.

You can imagine your own daughter, sister being married off just because she has no education and no choice to make.

We, as girls under the Rhythm of Life project, wish to have a Nation with Educated mothers and, therefore, we call upon all the decision-makers to improve our education system and see to it that every girl gets the same opportunity worldwide.
