Hope and empowerment for the girl child
Education is transformational for girls. It is the key to unlocking their potential. Educated girls are more likely to marry later and have fewer, healthier children. As a result, they have a better chance of staying healthy and remaining alive. When an educated girl grows up, she is more likely to learn new skills, get better jobs and invest her income in sending her children to school. An educated girl will be a force for change in her society, raising the status of girls and women.
We have a vision that all girls will have access to a quality education, lifelong learning and equal economic opportunities by 2030. This matches the ambitious targets set out in the Sustainable Development Goals. We are committed to achieving this by working to ensure free and equal access to quality, safe education, including in emergencies.
