Many people see education as a singular issue. Especially in the region where the Alliance works, education is school supplies, teacher trainings, and building structures. And while those are extremely important, education, especially for girls, is so much more.
Girls with 8 years of education are 4 times less likely to be married as children.
Every year a girl stays in school her income will increase by 10-20%.
Each extra year of education for a mother reduces the probability of infant mortality by 5-10%.
Educated mothers are more than twice as likely to send their own children to school.
The Ouelessebougou Alliance is, has been, and will always be, committed to girl’s education. We are committed to expanding primary educational opportunities to village children generally, and specifically, to increasing the number of girls in school.
We are committed to spreading information about the importance of education and the cause- and -effect relationship it has with other important factors in individual’s lives, especially in developing areas.
It is only through support from people like you that we can continue to bring these programs to Ouelessebougou! And, it is only through our partnership with people like you, that we can help spread the message of education all over the world.
Thank you for your support of educating girls! We couldn’t do it without you!
Thank you! Merci! Iniche!
