We aim to help young girls get the education they deserve, making a lasting impact in her family and the nation.
In sub-Saharan Africa:
24 million girls can’t afford to go to school.
A girl may marry as young as 13 and has a one in 22 chance of dying in childbirth.
One in six of her children will die before the age of five.
Research shows that if you educate a girl she’ll:
Earn up to 25% more and reinvest 90% into her family.
Be three times less likely to become HIV positive.
Have fewer, but healthier children who are 40% more likely to see life past the age of five.
