Education To A Child

As a result of many families, ending up paying school fees for private schools and this lead to poverty and forces them to choose whom to educate and whom not to educate among their children to get chance of learning. Often the sacrifices of staying home falls upon the shoulders of Kibera's young girls. Girls should be educated as much as boys'' say Bridget, a 14 year old girl spoke to one of my friends say his father decided to educate his brother and paid for him school fees and reject her because he thought that his daughter might get pregnant before she completed her education. She took for scholarships and joined high school.
