Our vision is a world where every girl chooses her own future.
All over the world, girls are treated as second to the boys. That’s why we put girls first. Too often, girls are denied an education, told who and when to marry, and blocked from leadership. Educated and respected girls are the exception, not the norm.
This must change:
When a girl is educated, respected, and heard, she is unstoppable.
Girls face many obstacles.
expectations for early marriage and traditional roles
long, dangerous routes to school
unequal share of the pandemic burden
But when she gets what she deserves, she...
- earns up to 20% more as an adult with each additional year of schooling
- is less likely to marry early & more likely to be in a healthy relationship
- has fewer, healthier children
- contributes meaningfully to her community
