Improving Women’s and Girl’s Education:
In Somaliland, before 2000, women’s access to education at all levels was very low. Due to the vicious cycle of poverty and cultural rigidities, parents used to prefer to educate boys rather than girls. Currently, girl’s enrollment rate is more than that of boys (in some urban areas). In the higher learning institutions, the number of female students has significantly increased, and for the coming years they may outnumber male students.
Nagaad network exists to To improve the education status of girls and women in Somaliland.
