It’s no secret that investing in girls leads to extraordinary results, research has shown countless reasons for it being not only the right thing to do but the smartest action to take as well. Girls are key to ending global poverty and overcoming major hurdles in national development.
Yet only two cents of every dollar goes into adolescent female development, compared to the previous half a cent. There is not only a perception gap in female education, the infrastructure isn’t their to support them either.
It’s for those obvious reasons and more that our next project will be an all-girls school dedicated to providing a holistic education to young girls, including a health clinic and safe spaces. We’re still researching locations so expect an update soon!
