Right now, there are 130 million girls out of school. To put that in perspective, if taken together those girls would make up the world would make up the tenth largest country on the planet – bigger than South Africa, Ghana and Kenya combined.
All children deserve a good education, but in the poorest countries girls are denied it more often than boys. Education is vital for moving out of poverty. Every additional year of school that a girl completes increases her future earnings, which is good for her family, her community and her country.
