Worldwide, 132 million girls between the ages of 6 and 17 are out of school. This is 21 times the number of girls going to school in Australia. However, by spending time in school each year, a girl can increase her future income by 10-20%, which directly contributes to the economic development of her country. Therefore, on the occasion of International Girls’ Day on October 11, our charitable organization has declared that education in Certificate IV in IT is a fundamental right of all children in accordance with Article 28 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
It was ratified by 198 countries in 1989. Girls’ education is recognized as one of the most powerful tools to get out of poverty. Getting millions of girls to school is our priority. Because this is the education of girls

Girls around the world, especially in developing countries, face unfair discrimination on the basis of gender. They dropped out of school because they were born “girls”. There are some obstacles in their studies.
Cultural Traditions – In some societies girls are considered a family burden. So getting married at an early age has nothing to do with housework and caring for children.
Ignorance of Law and Rights – Parents who do not attend school cannot question the discrimination associated with the cultural tradition of not sending girls to school. In some countries, violations of girls’ rights are very common and punishment is rare.
Poverty – Families in extreme poverty cannot afford to pay for their children’s education in certificate 4 in information technology and, if possible, choose to send boys to school instead of girls.
Violence at school and bullying of girls instead of boys at school, physical and moral violence and sexual harassment by school teachers and boys, and many parents send their daughters back to school.
From school Menstruation – One in 10 girls does not go to school when menstruation occurs because most schools have no room for change or the medical costs of staying at home are too high.
