The project plans to provide school fees for two school terms, sanitary ware for eight months, full school uniforms, and mentor sessions to 20 out-of-school girls, with specific emphasis on young mothers or women who fell pregnant as girls, so that they can re-enter school and stay there. By bringing them back to school the project will bridge the gender gap in education, foster development and women's empowerment, and provide an opportunity to better their futures.

The latest statistics: the National Assessment on Out of School Children in Zimbabwe 2015 indicates that 1,234,641 children between 3 and 16 were out of school in 2012. It is saddening to note that financial constraints linked to household poverty are a major cause of school dropouts; poor families cannot afford all the direct & indirect costs of education. Of the 134,055 out of school children in Harare 70,499 are girls.


The project will identify and take 20 girls/women back to school. The beneficiaries will also get school uniforms and sanitary pads to reduce chances of absenteeism, as some girls miss school every month due to lack of sanitary ware. The girls will undergo monthly mentoring sessions to ensure that they become assertive towards any other barriers that may push them out of school. This project will not only reduce the number of out-of-school girls but become a strong case to the community.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide 20 girls with education, empowering them to be productive members of their families and society and to be better equipped to fight poverty. This will reduce their chances of early marriages and other vulnerabilities that come with a lack of education and information. These girls will go on to become a mass of educated and enabled role models, contributing to society and ensuring that advocacy for, and access to, education in the community continues.
