Summary

Historically, the education of women and young girls has not always been a top priority for developing countries. Many families are impoverished, but girls are often the students who drop out of school because of extraneous reasons such as domestic responsibilities, menstruation and early. School closures in Kenya have had consequences for marginalized learners. Due to the pandemic, COVID-19 has deeply affected female education in Kenya. PCI plans to provide support for 100 girls in rural areas.

Challenge

Historically, the education of women and young girls has not always been a top priority for many developing countries. Many families are impoverished, but girls are often the students who drop out of school because of extraneous reasons such as domestic responsibilities, menstruation and early pregnancy. Other factors, such as period poverty, forced marriage, distance from the school or family reluctance contribute to the lack of female education

Solution

PCI will work with the community and families to keep girls in school, reduce early pregnancy through sexual education programs and shape female learners into successful students. We will also provide infrastructure support - pay for tuition fees and health insurance to keep many girls in schools.

Long-Term Impact

1. We plan to see about 75% of girls graduating from high school and ready for university. 2. Build a sustainable infrastructure to keep girls in school by working with the communities, families, schools and mentoring organizations
