Providing children with decent education requires real investment. This book presents the role of women in financing of secondary education in Kenya. The issue of financing in education is important because of the increase in the costs of children in secondary education, which tend to create economic stress on parents in general and mothers in particular. Given the financing difficulties, and the traditional preferences for sons, poor parents do not appreciate the value of educating their daughters, as they are likely to think that educating boys is more important and more profitable investment, therefore, denying girls the right to education. The book shows that women are willing to finance the education of their children regardless of the sex, but their decision on whom among their children should go to school at the event of little funds available, is influenced by their level of education and the society's attitude towards the education of women and girls.
