Mauritania: Why Aichetou is still in school

|

Both of Aichetou's older sisters went to primary school when they lived in Arafat. Neither continued on to lower secondary school. In 2013, only 55% of girls moved on from primary school to lower-secondary compared to 61% of boys. To address this issue the government, with the support of GPE, has been building more proximity schools in areas with large populations where children, especially girls, have not been transitioning to lower secondary school.
