Fighting poverty - keeping girls in school in Uganda (full film)

4:03 In many developing countries, one of the key barriers to girls’ education is poverty. Poor girls struggle to complete primary, let alone attend secondary school or university. Financial hardship often forces girls out of school and into challenging and sometimes dangerous life situations. Through its scholarship programme, FAWE Uganda supports disadvantaged girls through a full cycle of primary and secondary education and, in some cases, through tertiary education too. These are testimonies of just a few of the young Ugandans who have benefited from this support.

Fighting poverty - keeping girls in school in Uganda - Martha Muhwezi

0:53 "If girls don’t know of the available opportunities, the available organisations to provide them support, then the most likely event is many of them will drop out of school, they will not access education. Many of them will go into early marriages, many of them will become HIV/ AIDS positive because of the vulnerability and the sort of activities they engage in for survival.”
