Challenge

Many girls in Kenya hardly get the right type of education that would help them overcome the social, cultural and health challenges in their immediate environment. Crosscutting factors affecting girls' education include poverty, especially in urban slums and rural areas; prioritization of boys' education when faced with financial constraints; lack of adequate infrastructure; inadequate guidelines for policy implementation; and the prevalence of HIV and AIDS.

Solution

EmPAWAing Girls' Education is a short-term and high-impact project with the purpose of using 'He Named Me Malala' to engage youth, policymakers and other stakeholders in critical discussion, encouraging them to pledge to support girls' education rights and take action around the issues that hinder girls' education in Kenya.

Long-Term Impact

PAWA, as an 'ARTIVISM' organization, believes in the use of art to spark and shape national dialogue on important issues such as girl child education rights.
