Education is a catalyst for gender equality and personal growth. In Nicaragua and Guatemala, girls face challenges in accessing and staying in school. In this post, we’ll explore the key factors encouraging girls to pursue education:
🏫 Proximity to Safe Schools
Safe, nearby schools increase attendance by reducing dangerous journeys
💰 Financial Stability
Families’ financial ability impacts girls’ education. Financial stability reduces child labor and domestic work, allowing girls to focus on their studies
👨👩👧👦 Supportive Families
Fewer demands on first-born daughters and supportive family dynamics encourage girls to pursue their education
🚫 Prevention of Early Marriage and Pregnancy
Communities and families discouraging early marriage and pregnancy support girls’ education
🔥 Resilience to Natural Disasters
Regions less affected by natural disasters provide a stable environment for girls’ education
👩⚕️👩🏫👩💼 Female Role Models
More female teachers inspire girls to stay in school, serving as role models for their educational and career goals. Our clinics offer a motivating environment for girls, with volunteer doctors and photographers, the majority of whom are women, serving as wonderful role models.
