Support free education so girls in the Solomon Islands can finish high school.
Today, only 7 in 100 girls in the Solomon Islands complete senior secondary school. Signera petitionenSignera petitionen
The government has Fee Free Education up until the end of year 9 but it doesn't cover senior secondary (10-12), making costs increase dramatically. Families who are struggling face hard choices and it's often girls who get left behind. With boys' education often prioritised, too often girls have to drop out of school to work or look after their siblings, while their brothers get to finish high school.
Girls in the Solomon Islands know how important it is to get a good education. It's critical to getting a good job and being able to contribute to their family and community. But right now, too many are missing out.
Plan International's youth champions — Elizabeth, Aroma, Katrina, Margareth and Elima — are calling on their government to break the barriers to girls' education by ending school fees. Will you stand with them?
Sign the petition today to help end these school fees and let's get girls back to school and on to a brighter future.
