In 2009 in Ethiopia, the illiteracy rate was 65.1% of which 77.2% were women. For every 100 literate men, there were only about 46 literate women1. According to the Ethiopian Ministry of Finance and Economic Development2, primary school enrolment in 2005/2006 was 85.5% total, 92.9% for boys and 78.5%for girls. For secondary school, total enrolment was 32.3%, 41.6% for boy and 24.5% for girls. The statistic shows clearly that girls enrolment rates are below the average than boys enrolment rates. The gender imbalance was also reflected in economic figures: While the average yearly income per person in 2009 was 280 USD, this figure was lower for women who earned only 2/3 (67%) as much as men3. According to UNICEF data, 4.6 million or 13% of all children in Ethiopia have lost one or both parents of these, 17% through AIDS4.) Those children have very often little or no chance of a proper education; that’s where Rainbow Generation Ethiopia’s educational projects are coming in.
