To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.
The surest way to keep a people down is to educate the men and neglect the women. If you educate a man you simply educate an individual, but if you educate a woman you educate the whole family.
Female education creates powerful poverty-reducing synergies and yields enormous intergenerational gains. It is positively correlated with increased economic productivity, more robust labor markets, higher earnings, and improved societal health and well-being.
Girls are more likely to remain excluded from education while out of school boys stand a greater chance of eventually entering school.
If all girls had secondary education in sub-Saharan Africa and South and West Asia, child marriage would fall by 64 percent, from almost 2.9 million to over 1 million.
Education is a human right with immense power to transform.Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.
