Since the well was installed near my home, I’ve gone to school every day. I really love education, because it makes our future good.
Access to quality, uninterrupted and equal education
When it comes to quality education, girls are too often left behind.
School is an entry point for girls to pursue their dreams. But 131 million girls aren’t enrolled in school right now.
There’s so much that they can achieve, but there are barriers keeping them from fulfilling their potential. We believe that every child has the right to a safe, formal, quality education and access to lifelong learning.
Girls and young people know what they need to receive an effective education in a safe environment, and we partner with them to make that change happen. Our comprehensive, inclusive approach to education programming strives to be girl-led, because we believe that girls are our most important and valued partners in driving program design and content. They will decide their own path for the future, whether that leads to building a family, furthering their education or starting their own business.
