Of the 263 million children and adolescents currently out of school worldwide, a disproportionate number live in countries characterized by instability, protracted conflict and extreme poverty. In these vulnerable contexts, girls are 2.5 times more likely to be out of school than boys.
These girls are more vulnerable to sexual violence, child marriage, adolescent pregnancy and lower income-earning potential.
To fully contribute to their well-being, we must intentionally address gender inequality which hinders the development and growth of individuals and societies. But real progress can only take place through intentional action that transforms opportunities, resources and choices for girls and women.
We invite you to partner with us to support her strength. Give to POWER OF HER to help change the future for women and girls.
