The Case for Girls

Investing in girls' education is the most effective mean of reducing poverty. Girls who complete secondary school lead better, healthier lives and are more likely to educate their children, ending the cycle of illiteracy and poverty.

Girls' education is a cause worth spreading. Help our campaign by using the hashtag #caseforgirls on Twitter and Instagram.

The Stories

How can education change a girl's life? We enlisted 9 current scholarship recipients from our partner programs, gave them iPads and asked them to show the world how education has changed their lives.

We also asked 4 prominent women in Vietnam to share their story and how education shaped their success.
