Education for girls in Zambia is often difficult to achieve. They are often forced to drop out of school when they begin to menstruate, or if they marry or become pregnant, or if their families need their help at home. This gives them little opportunity for anything but a life of poverty. People’s Action Forum (PAF) has been working to support girls through their Girls’ Action Forum education program since 2014, and now it’s growing a new girls’ education program in a new school. Starting small with a nursery and kindergarten, it will eventually include secondary school and boarding facilities. The goal of the school is to provide a comprehensive education for girls, including those whom PAF has helped to stay in or return to school, and girls from rural schools who have excelled in their studies.
