As we are heading to end SDGs- 2030, Child Protection efforts shall be strengthened.

Keeping Girls in School (KGIS): A social transformation to leap-frog improvements in maternal and child health and empower girls & women for sustainable community development in Africa.

For decades, African governments and international development partners have been trying to improve the health of women and children and reduce sufferings as a result of pregnancy and child birth. While improvements have been recorded, the rate is abysmally low and not near those of other regions of the world.

Studies have shown that health of children substantially improves when the mother is educated. Completion of secondary education by girls has been found to significantly improve the health of families and communities. This correlation between the education of the mother and health and development of families shows that the future of African families is dependent on the education of the girl.

As custodians of values in Ethiopia as well as Africa, it is important that African religious & traditional leaders and community elders shall take the lead in ensuring that women and girls are not left behind, by addressing the root cause of the problems and ensuring that the girl child- not only enroll but complete secondary education and gain livelihood skills.

Collaborative effort by the donors, FBOs, INGOs, government is vital at this juncture before 2030 !!!
