Unfortunately, there are still many countries where girls are forced to leave primary school at an early age to start working as domestic servants and contribute to household income. Senegal is one of these countries.
Although it is one of the most stable West African countries where the survival of children has improved in recent years, but education remains the main concern: less than one in five girls can go to high school, while among adults there are only six literate women for every 10 literate men.
In front of this situation, Save the Children carries out a program with the main aim of contributing to the access and inclusive education of girls in a situation of greater vulnerability.
This September, Ticketmaster invites their customers to collaborate with the organization to implement this project. Thanks to the help of all of those who add €1 to their ticket, save the Children will be able to carry out activities adapted to the reality of the Fatick region that will consist of friendly, safe and quality learning environments for girls, promotion of gender-sensitive teaching practices and improvement of teachers’ abilities, including a favorable change in the attitude of teachers, families and communities towards girls’ education.
Promote the education of 60 girls between 3 and 10 years old from the region of Fatick (Senegal), where 40% of girls can’t go to school.
