Join the conversation about girls education with #LetGirlsLearn!
Educate a girl today and she can succeed as a woman tomorrow. For just $70, a girl can receive the books, learning materials and schooling needed to grow and flourish. The results are life changing.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Last year, we helped more than 7 million girls through our education programs education. And we know it works! For example, girls participating in our literacy program are up to 43% more likely to stay in school. When girls stay in school, not only are they prepared for a brighter future. With education of a girl child, when they grow up - the likelihood of their own children surviving doubles!
Educating girls results in...
· Healthier, better educated children and grandchildren
· Fewer maternal deaths and reductions in the under 5 mortality rate
· Delayed marriage and better parenting skills
· Improved literacy skills leading to greater economic opportunities
· More skills and knowledge enhancing women's self-esteem and the well-being of families.
Now that's a great return on investment!
