Stand up and educate girls to realise their potential rights..

The south Sudanese singer Hani Breva has advocated for the rights of educating girls so that girls should know their rights to education and employment.

She posted on her Facebook page that investing on girls education is transformation of communities.

"Investing in girls’ education transforms communities, countries, and the entire world". She posted

She further argued that girls who got educated are more likely to leave better life and don't get married at young age as uneducated girls do.

"Girls who receive an education are less likely to marry young and more likely to lead healthy, productive lives. They earn higher incomes, participate in the decisions that most affect them, and build better futures for themselves and their families". She argued

The south Sudanese singer and songwriter Hani Breva, has advised the public that educating girls strengthens economies and reduces gender inequalities. It makes societies to be peaceful.

"Girls’ education strengthens economies and reduces inequality. It contributes to more stable, resilient societies that give all individuals including boys and men the opportunity to fulfill their potential". She advised.

But education for girls is about more than access to school. It’s also about girls feeling safe in classrooms and supported in the subjects and careers they choose to pursue including those in which they are often under-represented.

Despite evidence demonstrating how central girls’ education is to development, gender disparities in education persist.

The singer Vivian Najet (stage name Hani Breva )who is also known as love doctor has argued to the people of South Sudan to support girl child education to avoid earlier pregnancies.

"So my people in the country (South Suan) let's support girl Child education, let's give them much to avoid earlier pregnancy".

Around the world, 129 million girls are out of school, including 32 million of primary school age, 30 million of lower-secondary school age, and 67 million of upper-secondary school age. In countries affected by conflict like us South Sudan, girls are more than twice as likely to be out of school than girls living in non-affected areas.

Covid-19 has affected the girls and most of the young girls are out of schools and carrying their children but though they're affected with this pandemic, parents and guardians are still encouraged to support them so that they would be back to schools and continue with their studies as usual.
