Cameroon Allows Pregnant Girls to Continue Education

In a groundbreaking move, pregnant girls in Cameroon will no longer be forced to give up their education. Thanks to the unwavering determination of Minister of Secondary Education, Madam Nalova Lyonga, young girls will now have the chance to continue their studies and pursue their dreams, regardless of whether they become pregnant.

For too long, girls who fell pregnant were shamed and dismissed from school, with little hope of ever returning. Meanwhile, the boys and teachers responsible for the pregnancies faced no consequences. Most girls who are being dismissed from schools as a result of pregnancy never return to school again and they end up frustrated.   On the other hand, the guy who is responsible for the pregnancy moves on with life as though nothing happened. But now, justice will be served. Any male who impregnates a schoolgirl will be held accountable for their actions, while the girl herself will be given maternity leave after six weeks of pregnancy and welcomed back into the classroom after giving birth.

This is a victory for education, for gender equality, and for the future of Cameroon. Let us celebrate this momentous decision and continue to fight for a world where every child has access to quality education, regardless of their circumstances.
