Parents have been urged to empower the girl child by giving her educational support at Primary and Secondary school level.
Addressing parents at a speech and prize giving day at Wasima Secondary School in Mabasa Mornef Investments Director Rufaro Nyoni had this to say..
Zimbabwe’s Education Act (Chapter 25:04) stipulates that all children have the right to education, however Gender inequality, poverty, family pressure, gender-based violence and early marriage as well as inadequate sanitation have kept girls from completing school, and this has lasting effects on women’s and families’ welfare.
