Abstract: This research focused on the impacts of culture and early marriages on girl child education. In chapter one are the background of study, problem statement, objectives of the study, research questions, and the significance of the study was also outlined. In chapter two was laid down the related literature on the impacts of culture and early marriages on girl child education and the chapter winded up with the conceptual framework. In the subsequent chapter the researcher explored the various methods of researched used in carrying out data collection, analysis and presentation, the following chapter laid down the research findings in forms of graphs and tables. Chapter five pointed out drawn-out conclusions and recommendations. In the appendices are the questionnaires used in research among other tools of data collection, analysis and presentation. This study has clearly shown how religious and cultural beliefs negatively impact on girl-child education in Abim District. Most of the beliefs identified in the study are grounded on misconceptions that stem from the people's culturally conservative conceptualization of girlchild education as a mere means of acquiring knowledge for domestic relevance. To correct these misconceptions, all hands must be on deck. It is to this end that the following recommendations were made: The media including the television, print-media and radio should help to design enlightenment programmes in local languages as familiar as possible that will not only help to capture parents' interests in educating their children, but also help to disabuse them of the constricting misconceptions and beliefs that are inhibitions to girl-child education. The various religious groups such as Muslim, Christian and African Traditional associations should help to teach parents the true positions of their religion on girls' education. The associations should help develop programmes that would assist parents and families in educating their daughters.
