Girls Tower High’s goal to help close the gender gap in quality education by promoting and supporting the educational and physical wellbeing of underprivileged girls.
Refocused efforts are needed to improve learning outcomes for the full life cycle, especially for women, girls, and marginalized people in vulnerable settings. With more focus on female education, communities can be transformed. Many factors including poverty, child marriage, and gender-based violence restrict millions of girls from receiving a proper education.
Worldwide, 132 million girls are out of school.
If all women had a secondary education, child deaths would be cut in half, saving 3 million lives.
When women work, they invest 90 percent of their income back into their families, compared with 35 percent for men.
