Girl Education

Help the helpless girls

Ministries for the Helpless provides the scholarship to girls in low-income countries and people who have been living for centuries under the ancient cultural tradition when it comes to girl education. Working closely with our volunteers among the poor communities who may agree to send their daughters to school but can not afford to pay. We counsel with them and give options.  Last year, we were able to enroll three girls in the college of nursing, a three-year R.N. degree course.  scholarships are identified based on financial needs, scholastic achievement, and their potential to become a positive leader within their communities.

Girls’ Education and Gender Equity

Girl’s education is both a key and a serious case to reaching other development objectives. Providing girls with an education helps break the cycle of poverty: educated women are less likely to marry early and against their will; less likely to die in childbirth; more likely to have healthy babies; and are more likely to send their children to school.   When all children have access to a quality education rooted in human rights and gender equality, it creates a ripple effect of opportunity that influences generations to come.

 

Education Reduces the Spread of Diseases

The spread of disease in developing countries is often increased by the lack of public knowledge about how it is transmitted. In 2014 and 2015, youth groups in West Africa helped spread the word about prevention of the Ebola virus, particularly the need to avoid traditional burial practices that spread the deadly disease. Education keeps healthier in many ways.

 

Education Improves Health

Knowledge is key to good health because women need to be able to read about prenatal vitamins and other health information during their pregnancies. This, in turn, reduces the rates of motherly death, and improves children’s health, too. The ability to read also is important in educating communities about clean water and sanitation, particularly if families need to use filters or boil water before drinking it to avoid waterborne illnesses and be aware of emergency notices about the Zika virus, Ebola or HIV. Reading keeps people healthier in various ways.

 

Education Improves Food Consuming and Reduces Malnutrition

When people/children become educated, they learn about agriculture and farming techniques.  They gain the ability to grow and maintain healthy crops, which provide vegetables for meals and additional income. Families also learn what nutrients their children need for healthy development, as well as foods pregnant women need to eat to help their babies’ health and growth.

 

The Importance of Education in Developing Countries

Education can be the catalyst needed to pull families and communities out of the cycle of poverty. Knowledge gives children the power to dream of a better future and the confidence needed to pursue a full education, which in turn will help generations to come.

Education also makes a significant difference for adults, particularly when it applies to everyday life, consuming healthy food, health care and gender equity. When adults learn, they become role models to their children.
