Country issues

In Niger, four in ten girls and three in ten boys do not go to school. The children grown up in an often dangerous environment which prevents them from following a normal school program. 76% of girls are married before they are 18 years old, 36% of teenagers fall pregnant between 15-19 years and only 29.9% of girls are literate compared with 50.2% of boys.

Enfants du Monde is actively working in the Nigerian territory to offer a second chance to children who are out-of-school or who dropped out too early. The objective is to improve the access to and quality of their education.
