He said too many students were terminating their secondary education at the junior secondary school level rather than going on to complete the SSS, adding that LSD would work towards ensuring that girls get the education they require to live better lives.

“As a nongovernmental organisation, we remain catalytic in our approach by doing what we are known for and continuing to champion and push for 12 years of free, safe and quality education for all girls,” he said.
