support HEALTHIER & MORE EDUCATED FAMILIES

Research suggests that child deaths would drop by 49% if all women completed a secondary education.

It’s simple: higher education correlates to higher wages. Higher wages correlate to economic growth. But currently, only 46% of women are in the labor market, compared with over 76% of men. The reason behind this? Women across the globe lack access to education, and education has a substantial impact on job opportunities and prospect. As a result, global economies are stagnant. UNESCO and the 2017 G20 Summit reported if all girls completed secondary education, nations could add $92 billion to their economies.

create a more stable society

The 2017 G20 Summit outlined that if certain countries doubled the percentage of students finishing secondary education, they would in turn halve the risk of political conflict in their nations.

An educated society is a more stable society. Educated populations are more likely to support and promote democracy over authoritarian forms of government. Educated populations are more tolerant of different cultures and opinions. Even further, the 2017 G20 Summit outlined that if certain countries doubled the percentage of students finishing secondary education, they would in turn halve the risk of political conflict in their nations. When you educate girls today, they become the leaders of our future.

develop community leaders & activists

With the help of education, women are beginning to speak out against the act and help young girls avoid the same fate.
