Keeping Girls in School During COVID-19

This January, the girls in the Enhance Worldwide program returned to school, with COVID safety guidelines in place.

This is a huge step for girls’ education. The Malala Fund estimates that as a result of the pandemic, 20 million girls in developing countries may never return to the classroom. Once out of schools, girls may begin working to support their families, become caregivers for younger siblings, take on more household chores, or be married off. After the Ebola crisis in Liberia, many girls did not return to school- and those who did had poorer attendance because of these increased domestic responsibilities.

This is why we’ve been working with families throughout the pandemic to ensure that their girls will not lose their opportunity for education. We’re continuing to provide families with increased food and household items so that they do not need to turn to their girls for support. For the past year, we’ve been talking to them about the importance of sending their girls back to school fulltime, just like before COVID- and now that time is here.

Everyone deserves a return to normalcy after such a hard year, including schoolgirls in Ethiopia. Thank you for ensuring that the pandemic only paused, but did not end, their days at school.
