Because I am a Girl - Education

Two-thirds of the world’s illiterate population are women, and over half of the 75 million out-of-school children are girls. However, with an education, a girl can lift her entire family and community out of poverty. An educated girl will marry later and have fewer children, and these children will be healthier and better educated. She will reinvest 90% of her income in the welfare of her family and community. History has proven time and again that an educated girl can change the world.
