Education for Girls

An African proverb says “If we educate a boy we educate one person but if we educate a girl, we educate a family, we educate a nation.” What do you think this proverb is trying to say?

Now, I won’t go into all the monotonous philosophical explanations of the world. I would just say that by sending a girl to school, she is far more likely to ensure that her children also receive education. As many claim, investing in a girl’s education is investing in a nation. Now to begin with girl education campaign it doesn’t mean that we scoop all the illiterate girls alive and huddle them in a hall and teach them. This big investment would take a form very slowly and eventually, however, we can be a major part of this campaign by being aware.

Secondly, importance of girl education is that if a girl is educated she can help and lead the nation to a bright and a good future. It is also important for making our homes happy places. Our home would be brightened if we have educated wives, daughters and sisters. Don’t you think you so? Education empowers a girl to be economically independent . She gets to know about her rights . Educations broadens the horizon of knowledge and thought and gives girls the power to stand up on their own strength.

Thirdly, it also makes them free to express their own thoughts. If women are literate, then they can share the burden of men in different walks of life. Gone are the days of plenty and prosperity. These days it is difficult for people in middle class to make both the ends meet. But if the women of that family are educated then they can add to the daily income of the family. A literate woman can even earn and live on her own if her husband dies or if anything happens which dwindles the family’s financial positions.

In conclusion, I think that if we all do the best on our part to get all the girls educated, we all can change the current situations of the world into good ,better and bright ones. Dear reader do not forget that what affects the world affects us all.
