More girls in school

Did you know that, although ensuring girls stay in the classroom is seen as crucial in the fight to eradicate global poverty, 130 million girls worldwide are still not going to school?

Each additional year of school attendance will improve a girl's chance for a better future. Educating girls gives them the freedom to make decisions to improve their lives, which has deep social implications.

That’s why our profits go to initiatives in countries where education isn’t obvious for everyone. Read more about the education projects we support.
