Because I'm a Girl

Investing in girls is key to eliminating poverty and creating a safer, brighter future for everyone. When girls are educated, healthy and informed, they pull themselves, their children and their communities out of poverty. For every extra year a girl stays in school, her income can increase by 15 to 25%.

If 10% more girls attend school, a country’s GDP increases by an average of 3%.

Empower a girl and she’ll change the world for everyone around her.
