UNICEF: Girls Education Movement helps girls attend school in Uganda


KYENJOJO DISTRICT, Uganda, 14 April 2010 Peace Margaret Atwooki, 14, is back in school after a four-year absence.

Peace Margaret is an orphan, a not uncommon fate in Uganda, where many children have lost their parents to AIDS and other diseases. She dropped out of school after losing her parents to earn money as a housegirl. But a UNICEF-supported club which a friend recommended to Peace Margaret encouraged her to return to the classroom.

I realized that my parents are not there, she said. So I say, let me go and study and maybe in the future become an important person, not a housegirl.

Peace Margaret joined a local club that is part of the Girls' Education Movement or GEM which was started in Uganda in 2001 with UNICEF support. GEM has active chapters across sub-Saharan Africa, all with the same goal: to ensure that children like Peace Margaret have support to go to, and stay in, school.
