Description

Ask a question

Cambodia’s education system suffers from substantial gender inequality, as many more boys are given the opportunity to go to school than girls. This scheme enables the education of girls who otherwise cannot afford to go to school. Thus improving their opportunities within later life whilst simultaneously lessening gender disparities within the education system in Cambodia.

Importance Importance

In Cambodia many girls are destined to a life of poverty due to their inability to access basic education. Many parents cannot afford the costs of education for their children, and if they can tend to and prioritise boys' education over girls. This scheme opens up possibilities for girls in Cambodia, presenting them with opportunities otherwise inaccessible without education. Thus reducing female poverty rates and therefore increasing gender equality.
