Free Education for Girls :Challenges and Barriers 

Gender Bias and Discrimination  Societal Norms: In some cultures, prevailing gender norms and stereotypes prioritize boys' education over girls'.

Early Marriage  Practices such as child marriage can prematurely end a girl’s education. According to UNICEF, girls who marry before 18 are less likely to remain in school. 

Conflict Zones  In regions affected by conflict, the risks associated with attending school are heightened, disproportionately impacting girls. 

Distance  In rural areas, schools may be located far from students' homes, and long, unsafe journeys can deter attendance, especially for girls. 

Insufficient Facilities  A lack of basic facilities such as separate toilets for girls can discourage them from attending school, particularly after reaching puberty. 

Lack of Trained Teachers  In many regions, there is a shortage of trained teachers, which affects the quality of education and can particularly impact girls. 

Inadequate Resources  Overcrowded classrooms, insufficient teaching materials, and poor infrastructure can all diminish the quality of education provided.
