Grants:Project/Rapid/itzedubaba/wikipedia support girl child education

statusnot funded
please add a title
Every girl child deserve a quality education, an educated girl is an educated mother and when the level of education for girl child increases, the poverty level of a country decreases. One of the vital reason of sending her to school, is for her to acquire education and also know the importance of education that will later on pass same education to her children.I have done a lot of research on the area why a girl is not in school I discovered that culture has become a norm in major communities because the community leaders have sealed it on their mind that a girl don't deserve an education, that her education ends in the kichen. A girl out there deserve a quality education. We must and we will stand for the right of girl child everywhere and anywhere in the world.Wikipedia enables children and young people to use and understand technology, search for and manage information, create and share content, collaborate, communicate, build knowledge, and solve problems safely, critically and ethically.
