Girls need to stay in school

Grandmothers help girls stay in school
Grandmothers help girls stay in school

 

School has returned to Velingara and children aren’t the only ones in the classroom.  Grandmothers provide an important part of children’s schooling and connect them to their history, traditions and culture.  When grandmothers are involved in the education of children, they have the ability to support children to stay in school – particularly girls. 

 

Frequently, parents do not support girls to continue their schooling.  Parents often see schooling as dangerous; an activity that does not reflect their culture or traditions that could also lead to teen pregnancy.  With the help of grandmothers in schools, girls are supported in their education and parents feel comfortable in sending their girls to school, knowing that grandmothers are there to look out for their daughters’ well-being. 

 

Grandmothers know that girls must finish their schooling in order to be part of the future. As one grandmother noted: “We must let the girls continue their studies. This is very important because today a girl can become a minister; she will help you and she will benefit as well.”

 

Thanks to your support grandmothers have been able to continue their work in the schools, ensuring that girls are able to continue their education and reach their dreams.  Join us this International Women’s Day in celebrating the powerful work of the grandmothers.
