“GIRLS NOT BRIDE ASSOCIATION” LAUNCHED TO CHAMPION THE GIRL-CHILD EDUCATION
GNB is an association to make an impact on young adolescent girls. Its full meaning is “GIRLS, NOT BRIDE”.This association is led by two young ambitious ladies Honourable Dagba Ernestina the SRC President of St Teresa’s College Of Education, Hohoe and
a Level 100 student Ms. Mensah Doreen from the same Noble institution.
The mission is “To educate the girl child and foster gender equality by involving communities-women-girls to stop discrimination practice together”. Millions of girls around the world are being denied an education because they are exploited, discriminated against, or just ignored. Millions of girls aren’t in school today. They are shut out of education because of discrimination, poverty, emergencies, and culture. Meanwhile, these girls have the same hopes and future as boys.
The desire is to help these girls in the rural areas whose rights as girls are abused profusely and denied some opportunities because they’re girls.
We want to educate them and their parents as well-precisely some parents in the rural
areas are ignorant about these situations.
They feel it is right for their girls to be denied some opportunities because they can’t do what boys can do Sometimes too same parents think there’s no benefit in sending a girl to school.
