Challenge

The gender disparities in secondary education remain a major challenge in Uganda. The percentage of girls in secondary schools has stabilized around 46% since 2006 and now reducing towards 45%. While the completion rate of girls at senior 4 stands is only 32%. The situation is worse in Sironko rural areas where socio-cultural factors like poverty, preference for boys, huge orphaned-girls, domestic chores, circumcision, early marriages and teenage pregnancies make the girl child disadvantaged.

Solution

The project will enable 300 rural girls at risk to enroll and complete secondary education by providing bursary, coaching health care and community partnership to eliminate social-cultural factors hindering girls’ academic potentials in Sironko.

Long-Term Impact

The project will grantee the best possible education performance for unprivileged 300 girls in Uganda while empowering them to became self-reliance citizens. This will reduce gender disparities and foster achievement of Millennium Development Goals.
