In Sub Saharan Africa, more than 60% of the youth, ages 15-17, are not in the schooling system. It also remains the most affected area as enrolment rates at a primary school level are steadily increasing but exclusion at secondary level is still vast.
Odds are often further stacked against females in the attempt of accessing education. This may be due to cultural reasons, such as traditional notions of roles of males and females, or due to health and financial reasonings.
By providing fair access to education, the youth is empowered with knowledge which may in turn allow for positive evolution of society.
