30 vulnerable children and adolescent girls at the Quarry Godreach cannot attend school because it is not affordable. Together we can get them into education with a two-year scholarship which includes school materials.
Our 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence outreach campaign transformed into a call for education for over 30 children and adolescent girls at the Godreach Quarry community who have no means of education because families cannot afford education.
As women and adolescent young people living in the Quarry site, they are facing lots of human rights violations and threats including: stigmatization, discrimination, lack of education, which needs an urgent attention in the community. The Quarry Bango Farm community women and children including adolescent girls on the plead calling for the empowerment right to education, they confirmed that education can move the entire community out of poverty, help develop the community, reduce hunger and dependency and increase the participation of women and girls in decision making.
It's is a true need that, the Bangor Farm community needs available, accessible, acceptable, adaptable, quality, free and useful education for the children and young people. It was a real and true cry of the community people calling for education, life skills support and development etc because they need and deserves it to change their lives and the entire community they live as they are tired with Quarry work (stone cutting) which leading them into lot of disappointment and cry.
We believe education is the way to a brighter future. We are appealing to the wider community to help support these families in any way you can.
