My vision for girls’ education in Africa: Safety in Schools

by Fatty Al Ansar, 

When I think of girls’ education in Africa, I dream of a continent where women and men are treated equally.

Empowering Girls Through Education: Inspiring Stories from Tanzania

By Dr. Aimée Bessire, 

Only 1 percent of Tanzanian girls complete secondary school. The numbers are not much better for boys, but it is clear that girls have a much harder road to travel to get an education. Girls face great obstacles to their education including unaffordable school fees, families privileging sons education over daughters, expectations of hours of household chores and being responsible for younger siblings, and high dropout rates with pregnancies, to name but a few. It is even more difficult for girls living in rural communities where there are often great distances between schools.

Reversing privatization of education: Case study of Rwanda

by Rukabu Andy Benson,

Developing A Generation of Young Employed Leaders

By Hassanatu and Hussainatu Blake, 

Though youth are better educated than their parents, youth remain almost twice as likely to be unemployed than their elders. On the African continent, young people aged between 15 and 25 represent more than 60% of the Africa’s total population and account for 45% of the total labor force (1). Some of the highest rates on the continent are in southern Africa, where 51% of young women and 43% of young men are unemployed (2). At least half of young people ages 15 to 19 lack basic literacy, transferrable skills or technical or vocational skills that match the needs of employers (3).
