Of the many millions of children who don’t go to school – the majority are girls. This has serious repercussions for everyone of us – not just little girls.
Not only are girls who go to school less likely to die in childbirth when they grow up, they have fewer – and healthier – babies. Their sons – as well as their daughters – are more likely to be educated and less likely to contract diseases such as HIV/AIDS.
Outside of the home, these girls can find work more easily when they grow up, which not only contributes to the well-being of their family but also helps develop their economies.
So, if you want to live in a safer, healthier world with access to the potential of 100% of the population – educate the girls (as well as the boys).
