Unfortunately, if you’re born a girl in most African countries, you don’t have much control over your future. And that future can be pretty grim: poverty, abuse, gender discrimination, lack of resources, nowhere to turn for help and very few options to improve your situation. Because HIV rates are among the highest in the world, many African children lose one or both parents to AIDS. And despite a tradition of extended family support, girls are more likely to suffer and are last to be schooled if funds run low or don’t exist.
When empowered and educated, girls can think in terms of new possibilities and help transform their communities.
Research shows that 80-90% of the work done by international youth programs benefit boys. When programs do include girls, the most privileged benefit, while poor and vulnerable girls are left behind. GSGC focuses on children who might otherwise remain emotionally isolated and illiterate in an area where education is both critical and elusive.
