The Importance of Education

Free, safe, quality education is the right of every girl.

But too many girls are still shut out of school because they have to work, are married early, or have to care for younger siblings, denying them their fundamental right to education. (


  • 31 million primary-aged girls are still out of school around the world. 
  • 32 million more girls are missing out on the first 3 years of secondary education. 
  • In many developing countries, the completion rates and learning levels of girls are lower than those of boys. The poorest, rural girls in developing countries spend on average less than 3 years at school.
