The global community has recognized girls’ education as the best investment for development. Regrettably, girls are still outnumbered by their male counterparts in most African schools.

One of the lowest literacy rates is observed in Mali for instance, with only 38.8% of female academic enrollment (Unicef statistics, 2013).

According to The United Nations Secretary-General Mr. Ban Ki Moon, “equality for women and girls is not only a basic human right, it is a social and economic imperative.”

We know that educated women are more empowered and better able to demand their rights, as well as having healthier, more economically secure families.

That is the reason why 7 Hills charity’s main purpose is to fight gender inequity in the educational enrollment throughout the African continent.
