Millions of young girls in Africa are not educated. If you are familiar with African villages or have been to Africa you will know what I am talking about.
My Foundation is supporting the 10000 girls project in Senegal- Kaolack. We aim to put 10000 girls in school by 2013. We have more than 2000 girls in scholarship today and 7 centres where more than 50 teachers are teaching to our girls.
Let me tell you that a young girl life in Africa is extremely uncertain, she has a little choice if not educated she will be forced to marry an older man; she will die with HIV aids or cervical cancer. If not educated, she will be raped or force to prostitution, if not educated she will leave her country hoping for a better life outside her country, If not educated she will end up in the hands of bad people that will take full advantage of her, if not educated she will be lost and her life will be over. Her life will become increasingly difficult and she basically has no Future.
As an Franco-African woman, I know how education is important and have a firm believe that if girls in Africa are given an opportunity to get basic education, not only they will become self reliant, independent, but they will become self sufficient. Education will improve their lives big time.
A sustainable education program will keep them in Africa and with out a doubt you will increase their confidence.
Teaching a young African girl the basic of Education is rewarding.
