Promoting Diversity

Research shows that, the provision of improved education opportunities for the girl child may help them delay marriage and childbirth, increase girls independence and greater self-esteem. Captain Schools is facilitating changes in traditional community mindsets. In Africa, girls are often considered second class citizens and many families believe that it is a waste of time educating them, putting a lot of pressure on girls to drop out of school or fall victim to early marriage. Captain Schools firmly believes in the education of girls. The school does not discriminate when selecting students although over the years we have educated more female than male students. Our female teachers and leaders are strong role models to students. By preparing a generation of children and youth with a solid foundation in literacy, numeracy, and problem-solving skills, we aim to not only transform the lives of the children and their families, but to catalyze increased development in the region and the nation at large.
