Girls Count

Every girl counts.

130 million girls don’t have access to an education. So we’re asking the world to count them, one by one.

130 million girls around the world don’t have access to education. That’s a global crisis—we need to sound the alarm to our elected officials. It’s up to us to push them to mobilize resources and support key policy reforms that get these girls in school. That’s why we launched one of our biggest weeks of activism EVER, all culminating on International Women’s Day on March 8, 2017!
