HOW EDUCATING GIRLS WILL TRANSFORM THE WORLD:

An educated girl will earn up to 25% more and reinvest 90% of her income in her family. This reinvestment in her family means her children will be more likely to go to school and be immunized, leading to healthier, more productive individuals and communities. The spreading of prosperity and influence is called "the ripple effect." A girl’s education is about more than just the individual; it is about the future of her family and her community. (Camfed)

Countless studies have shown that by investing in the education of girls we are at the same time fighting against such destructive forces as poverty, domestic and sexual violence, human trafficking, infant and maternal mortality, illiteracy, overpopulation, child marriage and more. 

GIRLS ARE ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL FORCES FOR CHANGE IN THE WORLD: WHEN THEIR RIGHTS ARE RECOGNIZED, THEIR NEEDS ARE MET, AND THEIR VOICES ARE HEARD, THEY DRIVE POSITIVE CHANGE IN THEIR FAMILIES, THEIR COMMUNITIES, AND THE WORLD.
