The Harsh Reality for Girls in the Third World
The Covid-19 pandemic has taken its toll on the world, but girls like Esther are facing, even more, hurdles to be able to return to their education in developing countries.
When girls are not enrolled in school they are more vulnerable to child marriage. When faced with the increased pressure on the provision of food and resources, parents in the third world see marrying their daughters as a way to relieve that pressure. The families who choose not to marry their daughters, simply cannot afford school fees for all their children and they prioritize their son’s education first.
Sponsorship Allows Esther to Chase Her Dreams
This is why the hope of sponsorship for Esther and so many like her is lifesaving.
