According to UNESCO, two-thirds of the 774 million illiterate people in the world are female... 130 million girls around the world are out of school. Again, a scary stat … Increasing education is an absolute must for girls and women around the world. Educating girls not only changes the lives of those girls, but also their families, communities, and countries. It is a necessary building block for women to establish financial security, a more autonomous life, and access to greater opportunities.
... And if you need more of a reason to support this cause, according to the UN, data from 25 developed and developing countries indicates that countries with higher female parliamentary representation are more likely to set aside protected land areas ... getting more girls in school will have a positive impact on climate change!
I'm putting on a school dress to raise awareness and raise funds for girls' education. Because when I put on a dress, I'll be helping girls in Sierra Leone and Uganda put on a school dress and take charge of their futures.
Help me change the world through girls' education!
