Safe School Accommodation
Rural communities strongly desire dormitories to keep girls safe. There are few secondary schools in rural areas. Girls walk very long distances, or rent a room near the school. They are especially vulnerable to sexual harassment when they are from poor families and struggling to afford food and rent.
Since 2011 Lyra has built six dormitories. Communities contribute construction materials and labour, and continue to provide food for the girls, enabling those who live far from school to safely attend and study.
