Rural Girls’ Education for economic justice

There are more compelling revelations are that sustainable global economic development will only be realized if girls are brought into the equation. Anne Firth Murray and many others note that girls education is not just a matter of economic policy but also a human rights issue. Thus, the Girl Inspire Initiative for Teams Advancing Women in Agriculture which aims to improve rural girls’ education is premised on this.

The project’s two outputs are (i)┬áincreased capacity of vulnerable and marginalized rural girls to attain secondary education and (ii) community structures actively and constructively engaged in education governance and management. The two year project targets schools in Dowa, Lilongwe Rural, Ntchisi and Mzimba.
