The Ripple Effect of Educating a Girl.
The ripple effect of educating a girl…
Studies show when you educate a girl she will earn up to 10-30% more money.
The money she earns will be reinvested for her family.
That money means children in her family will be more likely to go to school.
Going to school adds to the likelihood she will be immunized which means she will be more productive.
Healthier and better-educated girls grow into women who are less likely to get married young and have fewer children.
Collectively healthier girls are more productive and this impacts the community.
And thriving communities impact not only the country but also the world when less burden is put on economic.
Join us for this important global issue!
