Two-thirds of the 796 million people in the world who can’t read or write are women – yet girls hold the key to ending poverty.
Every year a girl spends in school, she raises her future family’s income by up to 20 per cent and educated girls have healthier babies, and are more likely to educate their own children.
Girls are often forced out of school. But with your help, girls like Makeda are our best chance of overcoming poverty – for good.
