Education

 

 

 

2-2Education is the most powerful weapon

for changing the world

     
   

Widespread education is of course a cornerstone of development, but in the case of girls in third world nations, it is often a key to survival as well.

 

 

Unfortunately, in countries with low human development, less than 15% of girls complete a high school education, about half the rate that boys do.

 

 

While a lack of available education is a tragedy for any child, 

girls in these regions suffer far more ill effects
than boys do.

Uneducated girls in many third world nations are more likely to be:

We can stop this. 

 

A basic education is not terribly expensive, and has been shown to not only protect these young girls from these crimes, but also brighten their economic future as well.
