- Studies show that those with a high school diploma have access to more opportunities than those who don’t this is particularly true for women in Kenya.
- According to Nation Newsplex report of 2015, only 2 out of 5 students reach form 4. Statistics show that students that drop out of school miss out on training and educational opportunities that require at least a secondary school certificate. Therefore, they are likely to earn less in their lifetime, reducing them to low-income jobs and low living standards. This outcome is even heavier when it comes to women.
- In Kenya, 50% of women do not graduate from high school. Many due to issues such as early childbirth, forced marriages, poverty, and the fact that women are not as valued to receive education in most cultures in Kenya as men are.
