Rose and Margaret

Hallo friends,
Here in Kenya girl do experience many challenges when it comes to their education.
Most of the small girls have to encounter child labour for them to proceed with their education.
Girls do lack basic things for them to study : example books pens and ruler in turn they may join up some paper for them to make up a book.
Socially they may face embaracement since they may lack sanitay towels which makes them embarassed and unable to mingle with the boys in the class rooms: inturn they may use pieces of old clothes or completly miss the class for about a week.
For the girls who come form Magadi (maasai land) may be forced into (FGM) Female genital mutilation and in turn they may get married as earle as 12 or9.
This condition makes Kenya A place of illitrate girls.

Then some thing needs to be done and we can do it together!!!
