REASON FOR GIRLS EDUCATION

At Rugirlz we believe the world ca not afford to leave girls and women out, exclude 50% of our brain power, 50% of our creative genius and 50% of our economic drives.

Children and young girls in rural communities are missing out on school and in today’s world, the girl is facing the most hardship and lack of belongingness within the society.

Starting from birth, girls do not receive as much care and commitment from their parents and society as a boy would. Women are the centers of the family. Though the role of the woman is very important and crucial, yet they are the invisible workers and lead the tough life.

Rural girls portray immense potential and prominence in their society and are actively involved and engaged in all activities right from house to the fields yet the most subjugated and marginalized.

Equity is cited as one of the major challenges, rural poverty, street and working girls as well as gender imbalance

We stand up against rural poverty and underachievement caused by rural urban disparity, unequal access, teenage pregnancy and school dropout, truancy, early marriage, girls mostly engaging in domestic chores eroding their study time.

IMPORTANCE OF GIRLS EDUCATION

The fact that women and girls might have a chance of a healthier life and a happier life should be enough reason for promoting girls education.

Girls in rural areas constitute a big chunk yet they remain the most subjugated, marginalized and excluded group. But we know that when a girl has access to her basic education and rights, societies prosper

-she will become an agent of change

-she will learn

-she will lead

-she will decide

-and she will thrive

A girl multiplies the impact of an investment made on her future by extending the benefits to the world around her.

Education is one of the most critical areas of empowerment for girls. Offering them with education is one

sure way of giving them power. Education is not a luxury it is their human right.

A child whose mother can read is 50% more likely to survive past the age of 5

The risk of maternal mortality is higher among women without education than women with education.

When gils and women earn income, they are likely to reinvest 90% of it into their families

171 million people could be lifted out of poverty if all students in low income countries acquired basic ready skills.

An educated woman has the skills, information and self-confidence that she needs to be a better parent, worker and citizen.
