Education is an important factor contributing toward having desirable life outcomes such that those who are unable to acquire some level of education are more likely to be dependent on others throughout life. The prevalence of school drop-out among young people is growing especially in rural areas and among economically disadvantaged persons especially girls. Efforts towards ensuring equity in the provision and access to educational services for young people include scholarships and material support in form of books and other study materials. Preference is given to girls who struggle in rural communities to attain some education.
