Home  /  Why Girls?

We think you will agree that the following statistics about adolescent girls in the developing world are shocking.  Girls are the last to be educated in the developing world and are often forced to marry before the age of 18.  If we can continue to build schools for girls, marriage will be delayed, lives will be saved and ending poverty becomes a real possibility.  Educate a girl…and she will change the world.
