ABSTRACT.

The purpose of the study was to find out the challenges facing girl child education in the selected

schools in Butaleja district in the Eastern part of Uganda. The objectives of the study were

divided into general and specific and among these included identifying the impact of education

for a girl child in Butaleja district and investigating the possible measures that can be put in place

to eradicate challenges facing girl child education. The literature review was done through

reading text books, papers and journals, the method design adopted was a descriptive survey and

the instrument adopted for data collection was an interview guide. The data got from the

instrument was collected into figures and percentages which were tabulated in tables. The

research found out that girl child in Butaleja District in eastern Uganda face challenges during

their stay at school than boys. The following recommendations were made by the researcher; the

government should conduct sensitization programes in eastern part of Uganda especially in

Butaleja district and parents and girls should be targetted to make them aware of the importance

of educating a girl child, Certain practices like early marriage, forced marriage and early

pregnancy should be emphasised, Teachers and school administrators should help in the

awareness compaign by sensitizing girls to take up education as a serous matter and the

importance of being educated, Local administration to be vigilant on those girls who engage in

child labour and parents who make girls to take care of their young ones during their absence to

be dealt with. The researcher sugested that further researchers should make research about the

problem due to the fact that she had limited scope of this study and therefore her findings cannot

be considered as the conclusion hence there is need for further research to be undertaken on

issues like legislation on defilement and sexual harassment especially on girls in primary schools

and also Community participation to enhance gender balance education in Uganda. Further more,

this study was conducted among secondary school students therefore the researcher recommends

that a similar study on primary school pupils to find out whether the results of the study can be

replicated among primary school pupils. With these, to the best of my ability or knowledge girl

child should be motivated by both the parents and teachers so as to achieve the best out of their stay as school.
