People say education is key, but what is this key for? This key unlocks a future for us, it enables us to decide what we want in our lives. But what happens if you don’t have this key? In Zambia there are over 13 million people. Only 72 percent know how to read and write. The number of children going to primary school is very high. Even so, the number of children who finish school is very low. A statistical view shows that only 21 percent of children finish their education. But w...


I choose the theme education because me and my team are familiar with it and we can say the right things about it. I can also say education is the key to success. Without education, we could have no doctors to help us when we are sick. In my life I have hated a lot of subjects like mathematics, but now I love it so much. I passed my grade eight exam, and after I am done with my education I would like to be a lawyer. Without education the world would be nothing. All the doctors, l...


I chose the theme education because education is the key to success and to help each and every person archive his or her goals in life. The purpose of education is to help us or we as children to know how to read, write and communicate with other people in other places or even other places. For instance, if you are involved in a school programme which needs us to travel out of the country and if you perform well you may be awarded a price which you may use to pay your school fees i...


When speaking about schools and girls, there are two big problems which perhaps threaten the security of girls and the environment. These problems ocurr during menstruation, and deal with unhygienic water and sanitation. How do these problems correlate? Here, we will not discuss menstruation in detail because that is for female-only topics. Menstruation is always faced by some girls in school who are teenagers and in puberty phases. In these phases, most girls sit and study in school. During men...


This is the video after the other one I posted. Just think of what a girl can do when she has the opportunity to do so.


Every year, an estimated 23 million girls aged under 15 are married worldwide with little or no say in the matter. In our newly launched podcast discussion series with the United Nations Girls’ Education Initiative (UNGEI) called "Changing the World for Girls,” we spoke to two experts (Dr. Adefunke Ekine and Dr. Judith-Ann Walker) on how to leverage education as a tool to stop child marriage and fight poverty.

Malala's Brave Namesake By WILLIAM DALRYMPLE Published: October 25, 2013 NEW DELHI — Ever since Malala Yousafzai recovered from her shooting by the Taliban last year, she has been universally honored: As well as a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize, she has been given everything from the Mother Teresa Award to a place in Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World.” Malala’s extraordinary bravery and commitment to peace and the education of women is indeed inspir...


11 October is referred to as International day for the girl. It is on this day that emphasis should be on empowerment of the girl child. This day is very important to raise awareness on the importance of the developing girl because girls grow up into women. Girls are actually the backbone of societies and countries, hence the saying "give a house to a woman and she will turn it into a home". I believe empowerment for girls means providing access to and facilitating the means of...


All over the world, millions of young boys and girls are unable to get proper education. In countries like India, Nepal, Colombia and various parts of Africa, girls are often married off and boys are forced to work on the streets to earn a living for their family. Resources like clean water, food and shelter are perhaps not even available, however we must consider the premium of education. The key to ending the global chain, that perpetuates itself and has done so for centuries, is...
