Reduce Gender Inequalities

SNCC understands vividly the meaning of inequalities and its effect in the lives of children, young people and the society. We aim to reduce inequality within and among countries by adopting all the targets of UN to achieve SDG 10 by the year 2030.

Gender Inequalities acknowledges that men and women are not equal and that gender affects an individual’s lived experience.

Girls are deprived of education in some society base on the belief that a girl- child place is in her husband’s house to cook, wash plates, wash the husband and children’s clothes, and take care of the home.

Some girl- children are even married off at a tender age of nine (9) to fifteen (15) years old in some countries. These girls are made to carry the weight of wife-y and household responsibilities.

Women participate less in the labor market and leadership roles than men. In some countries, it is assumed that some leadership roles are meant for a man, such as president, governors and other leadership positions.

Girls and women have trouble finding an appropriate job that commensurate with their certificate and when they do find one, it is often an informal job, or a position at a lower level and with a lower salary than a man’s.

It is deduce that, education is not the main factor which influences inequality in the society. The root cause of gender inequality is the role and place which society assigns to women.
