Why is Jagrati's school attendance declining?

By Sophie Stephens | Digital Fundraiser

Even though Jagrati, 11, is shy, she loves going to school. 

When a young boy started to abuse her during school hours, she found it hard to advocate for her needs. It soon turned into an ongoing issueand her attendance declined. 

Her aunt, whom she lives with,had been a key supporter of Jagrati’s education. She was a regular at the women’s meetings run by our project where our team members work withmothers and guardians to promote education for girls. 

Her aunt could tell something was wrong. After watching Jagrati’s mental health worsen and her attendance drop, she managed to encourage Jagrati to tell her about the abuse 

Her aunt immediately went to the women’s group for advice and, together, they represented Jagrati at a meeting with the school’s committee and explained what had been taking place.  

Once the school were aware of the issue, they met with the boy and ensured that it would not happen again.  

Issues like this are common and just one of the reasons the drop-out rate for girls is very high. With support and advocacy, barriers to education can be resolved and girls like Jagrati can continue to pursue their dreams.
