In a continent like Africa, its no news that poor parents as a result of lack of money, (who are interested in educating atleast a child amongst the battalion they have), prefer to send the boy to school, thereby leaving the girl to stay back home “being a kitchen property” and waiting for a suitor who is probably the age of her grandfather to come and make her a bride, thus disrupting her chance to enjoy her childhood and rights to education.
We are well aware of the fact that a lot of these girls have the brains and the passion/zeal/interest to have an education and to build a career, but are denied these rights, because of their gender and lack of money.
We are grateful that a lot of individuals and Non Governmental Organisations have sprung up to take care of the education of girls like this. We at GPS, also link poor girls to NGOs to sponsor their education and to fight for their rights to education, however, some of these girls cannot be qualified for these scholarships if they do not have the right resources to prepare them for the exams.
This is why we are pleading with you…on behalf of these girls. If you have used textbooks, or know someone who has no need for his/her textbooks or other academic resources, please do not throw away. Donate them to us, so that we can give them to the less privileged girls on your behalf. We presently have a few girls who need textbooks and other resources to prepare them for exams that will merit assistance from NGOs.
