Around the world, 130 million girls aren’t in school. The primary drivers are poverty and gender inequality. A girl without an education has limited options for her future. In most cases, she will marry young and begin a family of her own while still a teenager. Without a viable income source, she will remain trapped in the cycle of poverty for the remainder of her life.
Education is the key to breaking this cycle. Education gives girls financial independence and the ability to determine their own future. Statistics related to child marriage, HIV/AIDS and gender-based violence are significantly improved by education. Educated girls are the key to breaking the intergenerational cycle of poverty, and their children grow up healthier and better educated.
