More girls in school
130 Million girls won't go to school today (source: UNESCO - external link). And they won't be going to school tomorrow, because they are living in countries where education isn't obvious for them.
The UN calculated that with each additional year a girl goes to school, her future income will increase ten percent (source: UNESCO - external link).
That's why education is key to the development of each child as well as the community she belongs to. A well educated girl has a far greater chance for a better future.
