Mary Kategile teaches theology at Teofilo Kisanji University in Mbeya in southwestern Tanzania, which is supported by Mission 21, and has long been an advocate for women's issues and gender justice. As part of our "Dialog Interantional" series of events, we explore with her in an online conversation the question of why so few girls attend secondary schools and what opportunities there are for women to generate an independent income. What about the sexual integrity of girls and women, and what opportunities for development do girls, but also boys, have in Tanzania? Children and young people under the age of 18 make up a large part of the population and have limited educational opportunities and career prospects due to poverty. Girls often have to work from an early age, are married off early and drop out of school. Only 30 percent of all girls attend secondary school and a tiny 2.5 percent attend universities.
