Child Abuse and Gender Based Violence Are The Key Barriers to Girls' Access to Education
Dear fellow applicants,
I've been giong through your amazing stories about barriers and solutions to girls' access to Education and get to notice that sexual violence against women and girls is the main barrier to girls' access to education. It comes in different forms according to which country we are talking about.
In Sudan, child abuse in forms of sexual harassment in the streets, raping school students.
In Zimbabwe as well as Jamaica, child marriage and teenagers unplanned pregnancies are hindering girls' education and affecting their lives and the lives of their daughters also.
Our assignments also reflected how traditions and customary systems are more powerful than the state legislations.
Don't you agree with that?
