I too want to know more

Thank you for adding more information about the Towfiq Community Education Project. Can you tell us some more about the challenges you see? What have you observed about why students are missing, for example? We hear a lot, in the United States, about how often girls are not enrolled in school at the same rate as boys. Is that one of the issues you see?

Thanks again and I look forward to learning more. Best wishes for your project,

Anais

Education can change everything

More than 300 adult women in the poorest areas of Somalia have benefited from our innovative education programs. Investing in girls and women is a proven way to improve their education.In IDPs areas girls can't afford to go to school.

So we provide a financial resources to overcome that barrier and then work through national and local systems - with parents, teachers, government officials, and traditional authorities - to deliver them. We do not set up parallel systems, or bring in workers from outside. Our programs are devised, managed, and monitored by the community, and all of our Africa offices are staffed by nationals of that country.

With access to education we can do amazing things: launch businesses, become health workers, run schools, and lead governments. But education is not freely available to everyone - and in many parts of the world girls are the first to be excluded from it.
