Educating girls is important!

We came across this article today, it's title is KENYA: More education equals less teen pregnancy and HIV. The article talks about the importance of educating young people, especially girls.

The Kenya Demographic and Health Survey of 2004 found that "better educated girls were less likely to marry early, more likely to practice family planning, and that their children had a higher survival rate."

An article well worth a read and also illustrates some of the issues facing the community we are working with in Kenya.
