WHY EDUCATION IS STILL A CHALLENGE?

  • Safety of schools.

It is crystal clear that safety of schools is one of the big barriers that stop girls from accessing education. Parents do not find ease in enrolling their daughters to schools unless they are assured of their safety both on the way to schools and within schools.

Children who are born of humble parents face a number of difficulties in their academic journey. These problems are both mental and physical. One needs to have had enough food and balanced diet for them to learn what is being taught at school.

Victims of hunger suffer reduced mental capabilities, lower retention and reduced lifetime earnings.

Access to clean and safe water guarantees good health to children at home and school. Decent toilets reduce most of health related diseases like cholera. A healthy body is a healthy mind.

Good sanitation therefore makes learning a better activity to do in life of children. Girls need assurance of sanitation at schools most especially during their menstrual periods.

  • Early Marriages.

Marrying off girls while they are still below the right age increases at high rates. Parents do this with an aim of reducing family burdens. This is one of the barriers of learning in such communities.
