Why Girls


Every child deserves a high-quality education. Yet unfortunately, girls today still face complex cultural, social, and economic barriers that can stand in the way of their desire to learn. Right now more than 62 million girls are not in school, and as a girl grows older, her obstacles to opportunity grow bigger. Today, 32 million secondary-aged girls are missing out on their education.

Making sure girls and women have equal access to quality education is key to alleviating global poverty.  When a girl stays in school, she has the power to transform lives, families, and communities. She is more likely to marry later, have fewer and healthier children, and earn an income that she will invest into her family and community. Adolescent girls are an especially powerful driver for community change. Every year of secondary school increases a girl’s income by 15 – 25 percent. Investing in adolescent girls can propel a family towards solvency and a girl toward greater leadership and health.
