Why empower girls?

Studies claim that empowered girls can break the intergenerational cycle of poverty and violence.

Empowered girls foster and strengthen economies.

According to UN Women, companies benefit greatly by increasing leadership positions for women.

Empowered girls translate in healthier families.

According to UNESCO, 2.1 million children under the age of five were saved between 1990 and 2009 due to improvements in the education of girls.

World leaders, economists and politicians all recognize that an adolescent is the most powerful force for change, yet less than 1% of international aid is invested in it. Educating, empowering and employing the largest youth generation of all time is vital to ending poverty and fostering shared prosperity, the two institutional goals of the World Bank.
