Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to help all children to access education regardless of where they are in the world. This means ensuring equal opportunities for both girls and boys. It is also important that they spend enough time in education to enable them to play a full part in the future world.
It's all part of making a better world.
Education is the key, opening the door to a better life. It allows us to participate fully in modern life, both within a working environment and also socially. If you educate a woman, you often educate a family.
Girls are held back by poor educational opportunities in a number of countries. We must make sure that this is unacceptable in the world.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by girls but also by boys. In Sub-Saharan Africa 24% of all girls are not in school, com[pared to 18% of boys.
More than one half of girls of primary age are not in school in Eritrea, Equatorial Guinea, Liberia and South Sudan. ( March 2018 data)
Many girls never go to school at all, even today.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
The reduction of the number of children not in school.
Increased sponsorship of the education of children.
Campaign for equal access to education,
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
If the campaign is supported.
If I have persuaded people to sponsor children's education.
If the numbers reduce and the UN SDG's are achieved
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
