The 2012 World Development Report on Gender Equality and Development outlines that 31 million girls worldwide are not in school. The good news is that in the 10 years since this report, there has been a 5% increase in girls attending secondary school globally. While the gender gap in education is closing in many countries, and more girls have the opportunity to receive an education than in years past, the need is still enormous.
Many studies show the benefits of educating girls spreads far and wide within her family and her community, along with elevating her confidence, her contribution and her standing in society.
For these reasons, and so many more, we want to support girls education in the poorest areas, and are creating partnerships with proven organizations that take a grass roots approach and dedicate 100% of our contributions to this mission.
