    Combating Gender Disparities in Education Levels for Children in Africa

    Partnering with the United Nations Development Programme on Africa Human Development, Parsons Data Visualization students investigate how gender inequality impacts economics on a micro- and macro level. This project focuses on the current education systems in sub-Saharan Africa, specifically how many years children spend in school. It highlights the significant disparities between girls and boys level of education and the overall lower level of schooling that is provided. It also provides insight on the expectations for current students in African schools suggesting an improvement in the number of years children complete. Though the task of combating gender inequality in sub-Saharan Africa can seem overwhelming, education may be a hugely successful way of brightening girls futures in this region.
