Reaching The Parents
The Girls Education Challenge aims to confront some of the challenges marginalized girls face in obtaining an education. By introducing financial education, motivational counselling, and social responsibility, the objective is to keep girls in school longer and to equip girls with the financial knowledge necessary to access student and small business loans. Educating the parents is an important component of the Girls Education Challenge. The support and encouragement of the parents/guardians is essential. Stand Tall invited the parents to an educational challenge meeting and question-answer session to raise awareness of this issue and to provide guidance with some of the challenges that arise at home.
