Every girl has the right to learn and should have access to schools that are close by, and safe to attend. We’ve rounded up a few well-known people who totally agree with us (and you!) about this. Let their words inspire you to stay in school as long as you can because it will better your future.

  • **“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”** – Former South African president and Nobel Peace Prize winner Nelson Mandela.
  • **“We cannot succeed when half of us are held back. We call upon our sisters around the world to be brave, to embrace the strength within themselves and realise their full potential.”** – Malala Yousafzai, an activist for girl’s education from Pakistan and the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize winner.
  • **“Educate a boy and you educate an individual. Educate a girl and you educate a community.”**– African Proverb.
  • **“Girls have to be taught early that they are strong and capable of being anything they want to be. It’s up to us to change the statistics for women around the world … and set an example for the next generation of young ladies.”**– Beyoncé.
  • **“When girls are educated their countries become stronger and more prosperous.”**– Michelle Obama.
  • **“The world will never realise 100% of its goals if 50% of its people cannot realise their full potential. When we unleash the power of women, we can secure the future for all.”**– United Nations secretary-general Ban Ki-Moon.

See girls? That’s how important we are! So go on and thrive.

Hi Faithly. YEs you're right. Cheating is never a good thing. You'll also feel better knowing you accomplished something without cheating!

Hi everyone so if i was about to write a book and the title of the book was H.E.R was it going to be appropriate over the fact that there is a famous singer who her stage name as H.E.R ? Or was it going to be a bad idea

Hi Ahay. I'm not certain about using the name but I think you should take the book idea and go ahead with it and if there's a problem with the title you can always change that later. That's a great dream to have I think you should pursue it!

Hey, Springster thanks for your comment. In order to work out your APX score (the score that determines whether or not you have a bachelors pass), you can ask your teacher for help, they will have knowledge on this that we might not have. Good luck Springster

Am willing to work hard as I can to help the kids that aren't at school and those who are sleeping in the streets eating from the dustbins and those who don't have a place to stay in and fighting for their Lives in certain hospitals You know it breaks my heart seeing our one African nation suffering in pain going through devastating ways 😣😣😣😓😓😟And I've achieved a lot in some subjects but the only thing am struggling with is Maths my major problem but I will fight through it no matter what it takes
