Challenge

Traditionally in most African societies girls' access to education has been lagging behind compared to that of males. This has resulted in girls' level of education being generally lower than that of males. As a result, this has left girls vulnerable to early marriages, domestic violence and exposure to HIV/AIDS and entirely at the mercy of the men in their lives. Educating them not only empowers them to rise out of poverty but it also allows them to be productive members of society.

Solution

In the Zimbabwean education system only students with at least 5 ordinary level subjects can proceed to tertiary or vocational colleges. The project therefore provides young women between the ages of 16 and 25 who were forced to drop out of school the opportunity to take lessons and write their national ordinary level examinations at the end of the academic year. In so doing they will have the chance to qualify for tertiary and vocational enrollment where they can learn income generating courses

Long-Term Impact

Providing a 100 women the opportunity to get an education enables women to rise out of poverty by giving them an opportunity to make alternative choices over the kind of lives they wish to live thereby gaining an equal standing in society.
