Girls' education: we are all concerned!!!

By Fara Ndiaye | Project leader

"Women and girls are Africa’s greatest untapped resource, and it is they, not diamonds or oil and minerals, that will be the foundation for solid, sustainable and equitable progress. Health and development experts, economists, non-governmental organisations, UN agencies and even banks agree that expanding the freedoms, the education and opportunities for women holds the key to kick-starting inclusive economic growth. This is true the world over, and particularly true for Africa." These strong words from former Mozambique President Joaquim Chissano further strengthen our position to support and work for the vulnerable girls' education in Saint-Louis of Senegal to go and stay in school.

Despite the insufficient resources collected through GlobalGiving our association continues to mobilize all its volunteers for a good socio-educational monitoring of girls to improve their school performance.

Thus we organize reinforcement classes for girls, a frequency of two sessions per week with the support of volunteers who come on humanitarian missions in our association.

Volunteers who come on humanitarian missions are placed in African host families where they have a well-equipped room and their contribution helps to fill the gap between the resources of our association and the expression of needs. for girls' school supplies at school.

This report is an opportunity for us to sensitize the entire globalgiving community to support the education of vulnerable girls through donations or humanitarian missions in Saint-Louis, Senegal.

Our support for girls' education is paying off as one of the vulnerable girls: Néné Gackou, whose case we mentioned in previous reports, finishes top of her class this school year  with an exceptional average of 17/20 . Congratulations to Nene.

Nene's school report card is attached to the report as proof of its exceptional performance. This means that vulnerability is not an end in itself if goodwill donors make sacrifices, give a helping hand, a boost to make better the future of an innocent and vulnerable girl who was dedicated to failure.

Like Nene the other girls have all worked well and have good grades at school.

We so strongly believe that the suffering of Africa will end when the suffering of these girls, who will become tomorrow these energetic women who will contribute in a sustainable way to the development of Africa, will end.
We will conclude this report with the words of the famous African angelic singer Kidjo, a perfect illustration of the position of girls' education: "“Everyone wins when children — and especially girls – have access to education. An educated girl is likely to increase her personal earning potential and prepare herself for a productive and fulfilling life, as well as reduce poverty in the whole community. Investing in girls’ education also helps delay early marriage and parenthood. Our booming economies in Africa need more female engineers, teachers and doctors to prosper and sustain growth.” Angelique Kidjo
