Challenge:

Advancing Girls’ Secondary Education towards SDG 4 and 5

Challenge description:

Lack of purpose, vision and values among young girls due to lack of mentorship and guidance. This has led to girls dropping out of school, engage in early sexual debuts, and even pursue prostitution.

Idea description:

The idea is to create a mentorship program, where successful and high achieving women inspire values and purpose in young girls at secondary level.

Full idea description:

The main drive for life is a purpose and a value system. Without a vision, a person is as good as dead. Dreams cannot sustain a livelihood. To succeed a dream should inspire a plan, a plan that will guide a vision, a vision that will motivate a purpose, and a purpose that will demand effort. Women have and still direct the generality of life in Africa and across the world, from being bread-winners to being child bearers/raisers. We are what we are because of our mothers. The best guide a girl can have is a mother. Either her biological mother and/or any other motivating women who can inspire and mentor her. This idea is an empowerment work for girls through mentorship that can help them understand their worthiness in life, help them realize their purpose in life/ at least choose one, and assist them in structuring a vision and a plan to pursue that purpose. This will help in retaining girls at secondary school level and more so, improve their performance.

Feasibility of the idea:

Create an online mentorship platform that can connect 10 young girls at secondary level (struggling to keep up with school) with a group of 3 successful and reputable women for 3 months. All rights reserved.
