Challenge

Eve is in her second year at University in Uganda, she has been studying but missing classes and examinations due to lack of tuition.When girls start missing school they are far more likely to be exposed to other risks such as early pregnancy, marriage and HIV/AIDS. 90% of girls in Uganda have fallen victims of this circumstance

Solution

She will never again miss examinations once tuition is paid in time, she will be in position to settle for books and concentrate on her studies till she completes University.

Long-Term Impact

Increasing girl's completion of education cycle is a critical component of efforts to build their wider empowerment and in particular for ensuring that they are more able to be involved in decision making. Eve will complete studies and this will increase her capacity to handle issues, she will rise out of poverty, she will also be able to help her self and those around her.
