The two decades of war in Somalia have created a large population of orphans who have no family member to provide guidance. Challenges for girls to access education in Somalia are enormous and prohibitive, raising serious concerns for the future of hundreds of thousands of young girls. Additionally, poverty, insecurity and instability, cultural norms and practices contribute disproportionately to low access to schooling, and consequently illiteracy is widespread, particularly amongst girls.
Education for girls is both the means and the end to a better life, as it enables girls to gain knowledge and earn a living. Giving girls education is a way of giving them greater power to make genuine choices over the kind of lives they wish to live. The objective of the sponsorship programme in Somalia is to increase educational opportunities for orphaned girls and to reduce gender disparity in schools. Therefore, HRDC will support the sponsorship of 40 orphaned girls within Puntland Somalia.
Education enables girls to make decisions about their own lives, to acquire skills and competencies to secure jobs and to contribute to their communities as well as to promote progress for society as a whole. Additionally, education leads to increased literacy, enhanced political representation and poverty reduction since educated women are more likely to participate in business and economic activities. Better parenting and more thriving babies are a direct outcome of girls' education
