Educating girls is proven to be one of the most powerful ways to change the world; it empowers them to break gender barriers, earn more, marry later and have a positive ripple effect on communities, future generations and even the environment.
According to the UN, for every additional year of primary school, a girl is likely to earn 10-20% more when they grow up. Not only that, but they’re likely to challenge outdated gendered expectations such as child marriage by choosing to marry later. Studies even show that educating girls is one of the most powerful ways to combat the climate crisis.
And if they choose to become mothers one day, the chances of their children surviving past the age of 5 increases, and they’ll be much more likely to push to educate their own children. This will create a powerful ripple effect, breaking the cycle of poverty and bringing our world closer to the day when no girl is restricted by the circumstance of her birth. It all starts with them – and with you.
