Education is a main form of security for the Girl child. A main goal at CAL is to secure the education of the Girl child in Sri Lanka.
In Sri Lanka the girl child in rural and urban areas face the challenge of being under-represented or have a low attendance in school when compared to boys. This is mainly due to poverty, gender-based violence, and early marriage, lack of access to sanitary items and the lack of interest poor families have when it comes to investing in education for girls. When girls are educated they are more informed about healthcare, they marry at a later age, and they have healthier lifestyles leading to healthier family lifestyles.
