"The views expressed in our content reflect individual perspectives and do not represent the official views of the Baha'i Faith."

Using her mother as a case study, African educator Yassin Sarr persuasively and forcefully explains why the Baha’i teachings call for prioritizing the education of girls. Yassin’s mother, the first girl to go to school from her poor rural village in Africa, raised four children, giving all of them a way to have a significant impact on the world. With that model in mind, Yassin discusses the Baha’i model of compulsory education for all children—and the primacy of girl’s education within that framework. “What African women need are choices,” she says—and she challenges every person in the audience to provide for the education of one African girl to give her those choices.

    Perhaps this could help with education of girls. "Girls Who Code" created by Reshma (I can't think of her last name).
