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:
- 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.
