“When we began working in partnership with the local communities, girls did not enjoy the same opportunities as boys. In large families, the education of boys was given priority. The rates of school dropouts were higher for girls as early marriages were common especially following harmful traditional practices such as Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). Girls did not understand puberty, had limited or no access to sanitary pads and missed one week in four from school during menstruation.
Today, life is different for girls and boys across communities where we work. Since 2002, we have assisted 2,825 young people through our scholarship programme which aims to support students to complete their education. When children go to school, they need safe and healthy classrooms in which to learn and play. Our Healthy Schools Programme makes sure of that with improved water and sanitation, smokeless stoves and school clubs for the children to learn about health issues”.
