We are the next leaders: fund girls' education
World leaders meeting at the UN General Assembly must commit to moving girls’ rights forward by financing quality education for girls.
Education is every child's right and is key to tackling other issues such as poverty, climate change and gender equality.
Educating girls has beneficial effects on wider society which can contribute to lifting whole communities out of poverty. However, girls across the world are far more likely to remain completely excluded from school.
By closing the education funding gap and addressing the barriers preventing equal participation at school, we can enable girls to reach their full potential and take the lead - in school, at home and in their communities.
