Girls in Malawi Need a Better Education
The Problem Girls in Malawi Face
Girls in Malawi are not receiving a good education. Only 1 out of 7 girls graduate. Many drop out because of marriage, pregnancy, sickness, and a lack of resources. Not receiving a decent or complete education can impact the girls' lives and futures negatively. Without education, it will be harder for them to get jobs and earn money as adults. There are many issues that contribute to girls not having a good education.
Caring About Girls in Malawi
More and more people contribute to help girls get a better education. Some volunteers and mothers have gotten together and created programs. One program that helps girls get a good education is Girl Up. The United Nations is also participating in helping girls get a better education. We should care about girls getting a better education when we see what other groups and people are doing, because then we can contribute by working with those groups, starting our own group, or doing something to help girls on our own.
