Lightbulb Educating girls

Education ensures a better quality of life for all children, and a better world for us all. And every child has the fundamental right to a quality basic education.

Across the world, girls are less likely to be enrolled in school, and even less likely to complete a basic education, than boys. In many countries, girls face much higher barriers to getting into school. Entrenched traditions, poverty, and inadequate facilities are some of the many hurdles that disproportionately affect girls.

As long as girls are left behind, the goal of educating all children can never be achieved. And the goal of real human development can not be sustained.

UNICEF country programs work toward quality basic education for all children. But UNICEF has made a strategic choice to put greater emphasis on bringing down the barriers faced by girls. UNICEF believes that by bringing down the barriers that keep girls out of school, all children -- both boys and girls -- will find their schools to be more welcoming, positive environments for real learning.

Beyond the immediate benefits for children, UNICEF knows from experience that getting more girls into school today will pay enormous dividends for the next generation. When a girl has a basic education, she grows up to be a mother whose own children are more likley to survive; they will be better nourished and more likely to go to school themselves. She will be more productive at home and better paid in the workplace. She will be better able to protect herself and her children against HIV/AIDS and other diseases.

UNICEF's efforts to get more girls into school focus on 25 countries where the gap between the enrolment rates of girls and boys is large, as well as those countries where vast numbers of both boys and girls are not in school at all. The goal is to ensure these 25 countries make their schools more welcoming for both girls and boys by the end of 2005.

I am interested to know if the UNICEF office in PNG is involve in similar projects...
