MONROVIA Dec 19 (LINA) - Former Education Minister Dr. Evelyn Kandakai has challenged Liberian girls to remain focused on their education and not allow poverty to hinder their potential of becoming productive citizens.  

Dr. Kandakai noted that Liberian girls face a lot of constrains in their educational endeavors as a result of poverty, forcing some of them to compromise their dignity through sex for grades.

Speaking Thursday at the opening of the Girls General Assembly, organized by FAWE in collaboration with Plan-Liberia, the educator urged Liberian girls to be determined to achieve noble heights in their lives, no matter how lowly they are today.

She pointed out that Liberia needs women who will contribute significantly to socio-economic development, adding that women have major roles to play in moving the country forward.

The Girls General Assembly was held under theme “Girls Power: Discussing Girl’s Issues For A Better Future.” 

Over 100 girls from schools in Rural Montserrado County participated in the Assembly.
