How covid-19 has led many girls drop out of school

By LUCAS FWAMBA | Project Manager

Since covid-19 started and spread everywhere in the world,we have experienced alot of challenges especially in running our projects. Schools were closed due to pandemic leaving our children in the community. It wasn't easy for the parents and guardians to look after them. Most of this children were exposed to the world which led to behaviour change. Most affected group was teenage girls who had no idea of out of school life. Many cases of early pregnancies and marriages were witnessed. Others were forced to get married at that tender age due to pressure from their parents. As organisation we had to chip in to rescue this girls from getting married. It was a big task for us since the cases were so many. We launched a campaign of taking them back to school after taking over from their parents and guardian.Most this girls did their national exams and passed well waiting to join university and colleges. We look forward to support them fully until they achieve their dream.

I therefore, want to thank our well wishers and supporters for your continued support alsways. It has enabled us to reach more girls.Thank you so much.
