Summary

Thanks to generous gifts from donors like you, our NGO, ONG EDUCATION ET DEVELOPPEMENT, had provided support to underprivileged schoolkids in Kpodaha, Benin. Due to the crisis by COVID-19, the demand for support has increased. Kids are often out of school, marginalized and plagued by backward traditions, malnutrition and diseases. The few girls who survive forced marriage and child trafficking are the most affected. We need your support for 673 countryside kids to be educated and emancipated.

Challenge

In Benin countryside, women and girls suffer from ancestral customs. Girls are often forced into marriage or fall victim to trafficking. Poverty brings such unhappiness to them. They often fail to finish their schooling, and their misery continues. It is exactly those schoolkids' case. In fact, on page 25 of PLAN SECTORIEL DE L'EDUCATION it is written: "Despite its progress, Benin is still ranked 166th out of 177 countries worldwide". They need your support to be well educated and to be free.

Solution

The school being a medium of emancipation, you will support schoolgirls in order to enable them to receive an education. This will guide them in life and will bring them out of misery and the grip of the backward habits and customs of the countryside. To that end, those schoolgirls will be given school fees, uniforms, school supplies, remedial and upgrading courses, lunches, and good hygienic conditions to avoid covid-19 and other diseases.

Long-Term Impact

Educating a girl is educating a nation insofar as it is the woman who initiates children into life. Those 673 well-educated girls will become wives and mothers who are knowledgeable and able to lift their family out of poverty and diseases (e.g. ebola & covid-19). They will not allow their children to be scorned or deprived. In this way, we will build a new generation of women and men who will respect each other and believe in the full development of all people.
