Teach Girls

The benefits of educating girls — to countries, to families and to girls themselves — are so substantial that some economists, including Lawrence Summers, a former Harvard University president and former director of President Obama’s National Economic Council, have stated that educating girls may be the single highest return investment available in the developing world. Educating girls not only stimulates economic growth, it improves the well-being of women and gives them more agency in their communities and countries. — US Embassy website.
