Girls Education

Developing and improving girls education is a basic principle for SAFE Association and it is a fact that the number of girls at SAFE schools is not less than the number of boys. When we’re discussing girl’s education we should keep in mind the Somali culture which dictates that boys should be considered first in education rather than girls.

SAFE stands for providing equal educational opportunities to all Somali children irrespective of their gender and it specifically created opportunities for girls since they have less access to education compared to boys. Based on that, SAFE has founded special school for developing girls education named Banadir Girls School located in Dharkaynley district in Banadir region. This school was founded on May, 2012 with the help of Oxfam NOVIB.
