Stop the cycle of poverty and hunger with education…

    • Evidence shows that 12 percent of people (over 170 million people) could be lifted out of poverty if ALL students in poor countries had basic reading skills.
    • In developing, low-income countries, every additional year of education can increase a person’s future income by an average of 10%.

Improve health…

    • Over the past four decades, the global increase in women’s education has prevented more than four million child deaths.

Boost economy…

    • Evidence shows that providing ALL children with quality education could boost annual economic growth by 2 percent in low-income countries.

Gender equality…

  • When women and girls receive an income, they re-invest 90% of their income into their families, as opposed to 30-40% for men.
