Education is a basic human right for all children including girls. The issue of girls’ education strads two of the MDG goals 2 and 3 with indicators of literacy rate of 15-25 years old and gender parity in secondary schools (ratio of girls to boys in primary, secondary and tertiary education (UNESCO). Despite these, girls’ primary school completion and secondary school enrolment and completion are lagging, with girls dropping out in adolescence, mainly due to poverty, location, gender stereotypes and early marriage. Real challenge lies in need to translate education into life chances, including skills, employment & livelihoods. The quality of education and learning is lagging, particularly for the poorest. Social norms have often influenced the opportunities and barriers that include or leave girls out of education.
