Education is one of the most important investments a country can make in its people's future. Education is the solution for reducing poverty, catalyzing economic growth and increasing income. If we believe in the equality of opportunity, children all over the world should have access to quality education. However, for girls in rural Africa, often this is not the case. At every step, there is a barrier to education and at IGEA, we work towards breaking these barriers
Importance of Education
Investing in Girls Education in Africa is a non for profit organisation with a mission of delivering quality education to girls in rural parts of Africa. Starting operations in Ghana, the home country of our founder, we aim to collaborate with likeminded people and groups in order to work all over the continent
Through a collaborative team effort, we aim to eliminate all barriers blocking girls in Africa from accessing quality education. These barriers may be physical, such as rampant illnesses, menstruation, distance from schools, lack of facilities or mental, such as cultural taboos. One barrier after the other, one community after the other, we want all girls in Africa to be able to enjoy education without hardships.
