TANZANIA: Our Daughters Must Stay in School

Daily News on 26 December published an article on education, particularly of girls, as a fundamental element towards regulating birthrate. This is because, as UNFPA Tanzania Country Representative Dr. Julitta Onabanjo points out, “a lot of factors determining population change are driven by education and what is invested in girls education in particular.” The likelihood of a girl educated up to secondary education to have fewer children than those who leave during primary school is high, which in turn affects their future living standards and country’s economy. The article underscore the need to keep girls in school, including taking actions to institute (legal and policy) mechanisms that will facilitate young mothers to re-start or continue with schooling.
