Training and Education
Education is extremely beneficial for all children in Ghana, but especially for young girls.
With access to education through high school, a girl is less likely to marry at a young age. When she decides to start a family, she is more likely to have fewer, healthier children, educate them, breaking the cycle of poverty. She will also be more able to contribute to her family’s income and be involved in the decision-making process in the home.
The education of all children is one of the best ways to eradicate poverty. The costs of educating children in need are very low compared to other forms of development aid, the returns are higher and last a lifetime.
Education is a proven way to effectively lift families out of poverty and empower people to fulfill their highest potential. The children of Africa are its greatest untapped resource, and they are a resource that, if properly educated, will break the continent free of the binds that tie them down.
