Every Girl In School

When girls are educated, healthy and informed, they empower themselves, their families and their communities!

Here is why we need to advocate for equal opportunities for every girl in India

53% of girls in the age group of 5 to 9 years are illiterate

23% girls drop out of school on reaching puberty due to a lack of toilets in schools

Only 26.8% of women above the age of 15 are part of India’s labour force — compared to 79.1% men

47% of girls are married by the age of 18, and 18% are married at 15

1 out of every 6 girls does not live to see her 15th birthday

This International Day of the Girl Child, become an ambassador to advocate for girls’ right to education!
