THEME: THEME: Girl child education • Girls’ education goes beyond getting girls into school. It is also about ensuring that girls learn and feel safe while in school; complete all levels of education with the skills to effectively compete in the labor market; learn the socio-emotional and life skills necessary to navigate and adapt to a changing world; make decisions about their own lives; and contribute to their communities and the world. • Girls’ education is a strategic development priority. Better educated women tend to be healthier, participate more in the formal labor market, earn higher incomes, have fewer children, marry at a later age, and enable better health care and education for their children, should they choose to become mothers. All these factors combined can help lift households, communities, and nations out of poverty. • According to UNESCO estimates, 130 million girls between the age of 6 and 17 are out of school and 15 million girls of primary-school age—half of them in sub-Saharan Africa— will never enter a classroom. • Poverty remains the most important factor for determining whether a girl can access an education. For example, in Nigeria, only 4 percent of poor young women in the North West zone can read, compared with 99 percent of rich young women in the South East. Studies consistently reinforce that girls who face multiple disadvantages — such as low family income, living in remote or underserved locations, disability or belonging to a minority ethno-linguistic group — are farthest behind in terms of access to and completion of education. • Violence also negatively impacts access to education and a safe environment for learning. For example, in Haiti, recent research highlights that one in three Haitian women (ages 15 to 49) has experienced physical and/or sexual violence, and that of women who received money for sex before turning 18 years old, 27 percent reported schools to be the most common location for solicitation. • Child marriage is also a critical challenge. Child brides are much more likely to drop out of school and complete fewer years of education than their peers who marry later. This affects the education and health of their children, as well as their ability to earn a living. According to a recent report, more than 41,000 girls under the age of 18 marry every day and putting an end to the practice would increase women’s expected educational attainment, and with it, their potential earnings. According to estimates, ending child marriage could generate more than $500 billion in benefits annually each year • Every day, girls face barriers to education caused by poverty, cultural norms and practices, poor infrastructure, violence, and fragility. The WBG has joined with governments, civil society organizations, multilateral organization, the private sector, and donors to advance multi-sectoral approaches to overcome these challenges. Working together with girls and women, the WBG focus includes: • Providing conditional cash transfers, stipends or scholarships; • Reducing distance to school; • Targeting boys and men to be a part of discussions about cultural and societal practices; • Ensuring gender-sensitive curricula and pedagogies; • Hiring and training qualified female teachers; • Building safe and inclusive learning environments for girls and young women; • Ending child/early marriage; and • Addressing violence against girls and women

Established in 2013, St. Michaels Day Care and Rescue Centre is an institution for the preschool aged children and young girls who have been rescued from streets of Ukunda. Many of the parents find themselves away from their homes the entire day in the quest for food, water and work and are not able to afford to pay house helps to take care of their children while they are at their work places. The centre takes care of about 15 children whose parents have low-income jobs or are unemployed mostly of whom have semi-permanent jobs. The centre also supports 8 young girls who have been left homeless and abandoned by their families. While they are away searching for semi-permanent jobs, the project provides a safe place for their small children by providing meals and basic education.

Body of Christ Children’s Home was established in the year 2005 by a former government staff who always had a dream of starting a humanitarian center for the needy, poor, less fortunate and vulnerable children in society. She got a house, which was not in use, rented, furnished and started taking care of the vulnerable children. The number kept growing until she realized that feeding children alone was not enough. She then started an Early Childhood Development School within the center where children could get basic needs such as education, food and shelter. The project, therefore, has children home 164 children. Those who permanently reside in the home are 50 children while those who attend day activities like learning, daycare and feeding are 125.
