Over 130 million girls around the world are denied an education. There are many things that will prevent a girl being educated. But when it comes down to it, the truth is, millions of girls are prevented from going to school, simply because they were born a girl. One Girl work in Sierra Leone and Uganda, some of the worst places on earth to be born a girl. A girl born in Sierra Leone is more likely to be sexually assaulted than she is to go to high school.
You can change this by donating to help fund One Girl's four girl-focused education projects.
For every year a girl can stay in school, her income will increase between 10 and 25 percent. And for every dollar she earns, she'll reinvest 90 percent of it back into her family. She’s less likely to be sold as a child bride, and she can marry later and have children when she’s ready.
And the best bit? She’s more likely to educate her own children – creating a ripple effect of opportunity that will benefit generations to come.
Giving girls access to education is critical to breaking the cycle of poverty.
