Girls' Empowerment

Why Girls' Empowerment

Girls’ empowerment is integral to global development. Women and girls are more likely to reinvest their income in their families and communities, boosting local economies and increasing opportunities for everyone. However, girls face many barriers to completing their studies and securing meaningful jobs: unaffordable school fees, forced child marriage, lack of sanitary products when they reach puberty, and limited opportunities to build their skills. Supporting efforts that eliminate barriers to quality education, as well as making schools a safe and encouraging space for girls to participate can greatly reduce the number of child marriages and adolescent pregnancies, along with improving girls’ economic situations, social status, and agency long-term. This translates to better economic and developmental outcomes worldwide.
