Dear Project Supporters,

According to theguardian - "...an estimated 58 million of primary aged children are still out of school, 31 million of them girls, the majority living in sub-Saharan Africa. Gender disparities increased in secondary and tertiary education, despite more young people enrolling over the past 20 years." ~ Two-thirds of world's illiterate adults are women, report finds

In the photo above, Kadiatu is holding a handwritten letter she prepared to express her thanks. In her letter she said...

Dear GlobalGiving,

Thanks so much for your support that is helping me to further my education. I am now in Junior Secondary School Three. I love to go to school and learn because it is the only way I can achieve my dream of becoming a banker. My favourite subjects in school are English, Math and Social Studies. I belong to a family of four. We live in a two bedroom apartment. I have two sister. My mother is a trader. I love to cook and to read books. My favourite colour is pink. Thanks a million for your support. Love, Kadiatu - (end of letter)

According to Huffington Post - "The Brookings Institution affirms that educating a girl in particular can kick-start a virtuous circle of development. More educated girls, for example, marry later, have healthier children, earn more money that they invest back into their families and communities, and play more active roles in leading their communities and countries." ~ There's No More Valuable Investment Than in a Girl's Education

Thank YOU, because of YOUR continued support Kadiatu and other girls like her can go to school to achieve their goals.

Best regards,

Develop Africa team
