Educating Girls Globally (E.G.G.) was established in 2013 with the aim of increasing the standard of, and access to, girls’ education globally. By uniting a global network of young leaders with a common passion for social justice, we have completed a number of construction projects at girls schools in Malawi.
At these schools, the girls face many challenges in just going to school. Traditional gender roles and cultural beliefs mean that education is not within reach for many girls in Malawi. Multiple factors are at play such as early marriage, the dangers of commuting to school, as well as the expectations and responsibilities of girls within the household. Furthermore, a lack of adequate infrastructure and funding for teaching and learning resources results in a poor standard of education for girls.
