In Kenya, girls face an uphill battle to complete any education at all. In parts of the country , only 1 in 15 girls make the transition from primary to secondary school. Those numbers only decrease as girls attempt to enter the university level. Statistics from the World Bank show that less than 3% of Kenya’s female population has the opportunity to complete a college education.
