    "Some two-thirds of the 130 million children currently not in school are girls - and their education will make a major contribution to the larger, better prepared work force that the future demands," UNICEF Executive Director Carol Bellamy says "Education for girls is the key to the health and nutrition of populations; to overall improvements in the standard of living; to better agricultural and environmental practices; to higher gross national product; and to greater involvement and gender balance in decision-making at all levels of society."
  • UNFPA
    "Girls' education can be particularly important in breaking the inter-generational transmission of poverty by leading to smaller families, more investments in each child's health and education, and greater earning potential." Investing in Adolescents and Youth Can Yield Wide-Ranging Dividends
  • United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and Literacy
    "Education is important for everyone, but it has special significance for girls. Unwanted pregnancy and HIV/AIDS are among the leading causes of school dropouts. Girls who have been educated are likely to marry later, and to have smaller, healthier families. Educated women recognize the importance of health care and access it for their entire family. Education helps girls to know their rights. Literacy programmes for women have increased utilization of health services. Access to relevant information and services can protect and improve women’s health and help them achieve their reproductive rights. Education must be combined with other social investments, especially in reproductive health as a part of primary health care. Education and health care together offer individuals and families, especially young people, the chance to make more responsible choices in their lives." UN Literacy Decade 2003 -2012 -

    "The ability of women to control their own fertility is absolutely fundamental to women’s empowerment and equality. When a woman can plan her family, she can plan the rest of her life. When she is healthy, she can be more productive. And when her reproductive rights—including the right to plan her family in terms of birth timing and spacing, and to make decisions regarding reproduction free of discrimination, coercion and violence—are promoted and protected, she has freedom to participate more fully and equally in society." Empowering Women UNFPA

    But most of all, know that this is the trend throughout the world. Education for women has proved that development is fastest in a country or in an area when education for women is provided at all levels. The United Nations is particularly interested in this development.

GAP begins at the point of agreed upon and established assessments and ends with a concrete action plan. It focuses on the challenge to get all children – girls as well as boys – into school, or know why they are not."
  • WFP Budget Revision 8 - Country Programme Rwanda - 26 May 2006 See Other Country Budgets of the WFP Part of the budget includes: "The Basic Activity 1 ‘Support to Basic Education’ was approved, having a total of 160,000 school children to be assisted through school feeding activity. The school children receive morning porridge and midday hot meals during school days. In support of the Government’s continued efforts to expand primary education to all, the Millennium Development Goal of Achieving Universal Education and the WFP’s initiative to fight child hunger through the expansion of school feeding activities, the WFP Country Office took a step, upon Government’s request, to extend school feeding to 110,000 additional children of whom 100,000 was planned under the Supplementary activity 2. This brought the number of students assisted under the school feeding activity to 270,000 in 300 primary schools. This figure includes 50,000 girls, who receive take home rations of vegetable oil for regular attendance. The introduction of Take Home Ration for girls in schools has led to increased enrollment and retention of girls in schools and required to adjust the caseload upward."

    Foundations For Funding To Improve Educational System, Grant Scholarships, Hire Teachers, Books and Materials    To Top

    An individual or a small group with determination to work towards improvement can find ways which will work in a particular situation.

  • The Global Fund for Women
    "The Global Fund for Women, an international network of women and men committed to a world of equality and social justice, advocates for and defends women's human rights by making grants to support women's groups around the world..."
  • The Preston Fund "...shares our strong commitment to strengthening organizations that increase girls' ability to attend primary school, stay in school and achieve good grades. It also supports efforts to improve the overall quality of girls' primary school education.
    The organizations we fund address a number of the barriers that prevent girls from gaining an education. Some groups deal with the problems associated with early marriage and early pregnancy. Others confront poverty or war by offering scholarships and skills training in viable occupations or by building schools in refugee camps. Still others train teachers, develop non-sexist curricula, and host after-school programs where girls can do homework in a supportive environment."

    Two other focal points of the Fund are particularly important in the education process:
    " * Providing economic opportunity and independence for women...
    * Improving women's access to information technology"

    "Since 1987, the Global Fund for Women has granted $25.5 million to 2,000 women's groups in 161 countries, enabling each organization to apply the funds to best address the specific needs of women in their communities. Last year, the Global Fund made over $4 1/2 million in grants."

  • CamFed "CAMFED is dedicated to extending girls’ access to education in Africa". For instance, In Zimbabwe, CamFed has established a network of 172 partner schools throughout eight rural districts, which are committed to increasing girls' access to education.

    In Zuvarabuda Primary School in Nyanga, life skills are being provided to girls. Sewing is being taught on two afternoons every week to girls in the three final years of primary education. As the girls' competence has grown, so have their opportunities to make and sell locally-needed goods. The local pre-school recently placed orders for play tunics and this income is sustaining the cost of materials and training. The group is now learning to make primary school sports tunics for their peers.

    In Northern Ghana, CamFed provides support to girls in seven rural districts - Savelugu Nanton, Bole, Gushegu Karaga, East Mamprusi, Tamale Rural, and as of 2001, Tolon Kumbungu and Nanumba... Support begins when girls reach Class Four at primary school - the point when they are at most risk of dropping out. This includes the provision of school uniform, school shoes and stationery, the major costs for education at primary level. Providing uniforms has a very positive impact on girls' self-esteem. Clothes are valued in rural communities and the sight for the first time of large numbers of girls walking smartly and confidently to school is raising parental and community pride. In many schools in Northern Ghana, is not unusual for ten or fifteen children to share one book. A significant number of children cannot afford to buy exercise books and so write on slates, which means they have no permanent record of their work. CamFed is providing items such as reading books, exercise books and math sets to improve the quality of education in our 29 partner schools.

  • Global Fund for Children
    Works through community-based organizations which will take responsibility for the improvement of education programs .The most creative and effective projects to benefit children and youth often are generated at the community level, where financial resources are scarce. Local groups can best understand the needs of their community and its children. The Global Fund for Children works hard to discover successful community-based organizations that promote youth leadership and improve education for children who otherwise would be left behind. Our grants support non formal educational programs that integrate basic education with awareness building and training. Grants are generally small but "generate an enormous return by strengthening ... innovative, community-based programs. We support capacity building, provide referrals, leverage supplementary funds from other grant making organizations, and evaluate results. We think of our work as modest-scale venture philanthropy without borders. The Global Fund for Children has no geographic limitations. Our grants have helped children from Afghanistan to Zambia..."

  • Cisco Systems: The Least-Developed Countries Initiative "By the end of FY2005, 196 academies had been established in 51 countries. More than 10,000 continuing students were currently participating in the Cisco associate-level CCNA certification curriculum. To date, more than 5,000 students have graduated from the CCNA 4 curriculum in the LDCs." "...Women in Technology (WIT) Cisco Networking Academy Scholarship Program was initiated with a $300,000 grant from USAID in 2004. This program has already granted 375 scholarships to students at Cisco academies in Bangladesh, Mongolia, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, and 180 scholarships to women in Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco."

In some cases, a girl’s good attendance is rewarded with food for her family. These take-home rations can be eaten by the family or sold to make up for the loss of the girl's labor at home. This kind of program makes education affordable and encourages families to send their daughters to school."
