Child labour affecting girls education in Kibera slums




Kibera
is among the the worlds biggest slums.
Due to poverty surrounding the area most girls have dropped out of school and they have ended up joining some local work like being baby sitters starting from an early age of eight or nine.
Most girls from Kibera slums have ruined their life's due to illiteracy and hence Kibera as a ghetto has become a laughing stock where no one admires to come from.
Due to the illiteracy around the area peer pressure has affected most girls and on the impact they have ended up abusing drugs like bang, cocaine (affecting their health) and to make the matters worse early parent hood has been a negative out come from the girls.
In the neighbourhood it is so pathetic to note maria who is only 13 and she became pregnant and she had no one to turn to therefore she had to go for an abortion which is illegal in Kenya.
It is so hurtful for the bright girl like maria to have such an encounter at an early age of life.
The major cause of Maria's life being ruined is poverty and in any case when I asked her whether she was ready to become a parent she never answered but on the contrary she said "I did because it is so difficult to take care of my daily needs like food, clothing and working is very difficult for me"
According to Mari's experience it is very evident that poverty in Kibera has brought about child labour as well as illiteracy and lives of girls being ruined.

You can make the world a better global village if you support one girl like Maria so that she can go on with her studies.
You can do that by sending your donations to the bank account Number in the side bar above.

School For the Girls is working with the girls to support their education so that Girls who are in need can be accessed to education.
You can even send books, pen and other literature things.


Thanks
