Abstract: The problem of discrimination in girl child education cuts through norms of domestic and international law such as gender, culture, custom, religion, marriage and the respect of family life. Better educated girls grow up to be healthier women, which decrease the long term mortality risk for her children — a child who loses her mother, especially in developing countries, is more likely to become vulnerable to health or well being challenges. Girls’ education also directly impacts productivity levels and participation rates in the labor force.Despite of the government’s awareness of such conventions and advantages of girl child education, it seems to ignore the importance of such conventions and little has been done to empower women in Uganda. This paper is therefore inspired to look at education with respect to girl children education and women empowerment in Uganda the great focus being put in Malindye Division Kansaga Parish.
