These mums know how important it is to get a good education. They’re counting a girl who, somewhere in the world, is missing out on school right now.
This Mother’s Day, join the #GirlsCount campaign by adding your photo or video here.
She tied your shoe on the first day of school. She helped you with your homework. She took you shopping for the uniform you never wanted to wear.
If your mum knew how important it was to get a good education, say thank you to her today. And then take five minutes to help 130 million girls who are missing out on school.
Educate a girl in one of the world’s poorest countries, and it boosts her health, wealth, and ability to take control of her life. She’s less likely to become a child bride, experience violence or contract HIV. But it doesn’t stop there. She’ll have healthier, better educated children. And she could help lift her family — and her entire country — out of poverty.
Our leaders have the power to make sure every girl starts, and finishes school. We’ll deliver your message and keep up the pressure until they act.
