Empower Girls with Education

World Vision

Globally, 130 million girls ages 6 to 17 are out of school. Adolescent girls are most at risk of dropping out. Child marriage, pregnancy, family pressures, violence and harassment, and poverty keep girls from reaching their potential — but ALL God’s children deserve a chance to live life in all its fullness. As people of faith, we must address these critical barriers that keep girls out of the classroom.

When you invest in a girl, the dividends are immeasurable. Educated women get better wages and raise healthier and more educated children. Their voices are better heard in their communities. This results in stronger economies, more peaceful nations, and more equitable systems.

  • Girls in the developing world with at least seven years of education marry four years later and have fewer children.
  • Women make up more than two-thirds of the world’s 796 million illiterate people.
  • If all girls went to school for 12 years, low- and middle-income countries could add up to $92 billion per year to their economies.

The Keeping Girls in School Act uses innovative financing to build stronger partnerships that prioritize teen girls’ access to education worldwide. It fights poverty and promotes global stability. Please ask your elected official to cosponsor the Keeping Girls in School Act.
