Day of the Girl Child: Ten toughest places for girls to get Education
By Chisom Winnifred

International Day of the Girl Child is an international observance day declared by the United Nations; it is also called the Day of the Girl and the International Day of the Girl. October 11, 2012, was the first Day of the Girl. The observation supports more opportunity for girls and increases awareness of gender inequality faced by girls worldwide based upon their gender.

According to BBC, these ten countries have been marked at the ten toughest countries for girls to obtain education.

South Sudan: Almost three-quarters of girls do not even make it to primary school.

Central African Republic: one teacher for every 80 pupils

Niger: only 17% of women between the ages of 15 and 24 are literate

Afghanistan: wide gender gap, with boys more likely to be in school than girls

Chad: many social and economic barriers to girls and women getting education

Mali: only 38% of girls finish primary school

Guinea: the average time in education among women over the age of 25 is less than one year

Burkina Faso: only 1% of girls complete secondary school

Liberia: almost two-thirds of primary-age pupils out of school

Ethiopia: two in five girls are married before the age of 18
