Why Girls

gftlg-girls-5Girls are key to ending global poverty. When we invest in girls, their successes transform not only their own lives, but the lives of their families and communities. Through their empowerment and education, new opportunities are made available, the economy is expanded and families are made stronger. When girls are given a chance to stay in school, to delay marriage and childbirth, be granted access to health services, then families, communities and countries all benefit.
