Girl Child Education

By a female, 16-21 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of Girl child education Girl child education is something that was never taken serious.You could find a girl and a boy who were in a primary school and finish their KCPE together,the girl performance well than the boy but the boy is let to continue with high school but not the girl.It was said by our elders that girls work were just to be home with their mother and so education to them would just be a waste.The girls were meant to be house wives. In the western parts of Kenya many girl were led into marriage at earlier age which was very bad.It was during this time when Canadians and come to Kakamega and introduced scholarships for girls to continue with their higher education only if they performed well.They did not only look at the performance but also the backgrounds.This has improved things and parents are taking their girls to school.The girls who got the scholarships are now women of substance and can now stand in the community and help others in the development or others activities not only house work.
