Girls out of school

Take a look at the contrasting lives of two girls living in Nigeria, one in school and one not. Encourage your KS2 or KS3 class to think about the benefits of education and at the reasons why some children around the world don’t go to school.

What’s in my download?

To help your class understand why some girls miss out on school and to encourage them to think about the benefits of education, we’ve packaged:

  • Two case studies focusing on Precious, who attends school, and Sefiyat, who doesn’t
  • A video, below, showing how Precious leads an ActionAid girls’ club which encourages others to start and remain in school.
  • Literacy and numeracy worksheets, including a time-telling activity, to engage your pupils further.
