“In my home country Kenya, it was very difficult for some communities to value girl’s education. But as time went on, this is changing because girls are going to school like their fellow brothers.” Jesse Karanja, 13, a student from Kenya.

“In my home country Kenya, it was very difficult for some communities to value girl’s education. But as time went on, this is changing because girls are going to school like their fellow brothers.”

Jesse Karanja, 13, a student from Kenya.

“I hear that some years back our sisters were not allowed to go to school but these days, we are proudly competing with them in all aspects.”

Aristide Muhire, 16, Student from Rusizi District.

“If our sisters are not given the chance to go to school, it would be very difficult for the country to develop because one gender is educated and the other gender is not educated.”

Etienne Rafiki, 16, Student from Rusizi.

“Girls these days are very serious about their rights so if some parents are hesitant about what they are supposed to give them, they will report them.”

Melan Rutaremara, 17, student from Ngororero.
