As a result, many cildren and girl child miss on average four days of school every month which is 38 days in a year, meaning they fall behind in class and sometimes even drop out of school altogether. This is an added challenge with the current lock down of all insitutions in the country many girls fall prey to unwanted pregnancies and sexual abuses' to the already existing problems that lead to the high dropout rate of female pupils in primary and secondary schools.
