An African Rural Community

To address Social Problems Girls and Children in Rural Communities face creating a more Humane Environment for them.

AFGACF – believes, in order for communities to thrive, Children need to be protected, and men and women, Girls, Boys and Children must enjoy the same human rights and be given the same opportunity to participate in decisions that affect their lives irrespective of Sex, Religion, Gender, Race, Economic backgrounds etc.”If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich’’ John Kennedy

Unless we can help the world’s poorest create a better life, no one’s prosperity can be secure.”

AFGACF works extensively helping vulnerable Girls and marginalized Children obtain quality education through Vocational Training and Formal Education Sponsorships. Over the years, we have made great progress in building the capacity of Girls and Children to effectively address issues confronting them and play a major role in the development of their communities. We are however proud of the lives we have been able to touch so far and are equally excited about the future of Africa!

WHY GIRLS’ EDUCATION?

It is estimated that worldwide, 62 million Girls-half of whom are adolescent are not in school. And the disparity in gender in education remains quite real today worldwide, with 78 per cent of girls dropping out of school-compared to 48 per cent of boys. Despite dramatic improvements over the last decade, progress towards achieving education for all has stagnated. In total, 121 million children and adolescents are currently out of primary and lower secondary school worldwide – a number that has remained essentially constant since 2007. 78 million of these children live in Low Income generating Countries.

41% of all school-dropped-out children of primary school age have never attended school and will probably never start if current trends continue. 25 million children of primary school age are expected to never attend school. 15 million of these children are girls. School systems need to be strengthened with a specific focus on reaching marginalized girls and children. We can achieve the SDG goal together.IMG-20170411-WA0005
