Last month, Women’s Global Education Project Senegal hosted a special community celebration in honor of the United Nations’ International Day of the Girl Child, a day to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world.
We celebrated the hundreds of adolescent girls in our program who maintained a 100% retention rate in school this year! This accomplishment would not have been possible without the involvement of the many parents, community leaders, and mentors who supported girls through the challenges of the ongoing pandemic, in addition to WGEP’s scholarship program, which covers the costs of school and exam fees, uniforms, food, school supplies, transportation and safe lodging for all scholars.
Please enjoy this video of community members dancing at this special event, and thank you for believing in the power of girls’ education!
