As discussed before, completion rates for primary school in Ethiopia is at 52.8%. Understandably, the number of children who attend secondary education is even lower and the majority do not attend. The Daughters of Charity believe improving the levels of students taking part in secondary education would improve the prospects of the children arriving there, particularly for poorer families and girls, who are more unlikely than others to reach this level of education. A UNESCO study placed Ethiopia 126 out of 127 countries in the Education for All development index which maps gender equality in education. 39% of boys, for example, enrol in secondary education, whilst only 30% of girls do.
