What’s Keeping Girls in School2018-07-10T10:09:13+00:00

Give Every Girl a Chance to Learn

There are 130 million girls out of school worldwide, and we can’t let this number rise. If you have read the latest Footsteps magazine, then you know some of the biggest barriers that keep girls from going to school have tangible solutions. We have to act now, or the number of girls out of school will only increase.

I want every girl to have access to education.

Be Part of the Solution

Creating safe spaces for girls is the only way to break down these barriers. They need secure boundary walls to lessen the danger from people who believe they should stay at home. They need many more classrooms to ensure each girl who wants an education has a warm and dry place to learn, and they need clean and sanitary washrooms to prevent them from missing school because they are sick.

You can get involved with one or all of these building projects to make dreams of education a reality.
