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.UNICEF, 2020
If all women had a secondary education, child deaths would be cut in half, saving 3 million lives.UNESCO, 2013
When women work, they invest 90 percent of their income back into their families, compared with 35 percent for men.UNESCO, 2012
Why Math Tutoring?
617 million youth worldwide lack basic mathematics and literacy skills. The unfortunate underrepresentation of females in math-related careers widens the gap of gender equality vastly. In society, girls are not encouraged to pursue careers involving math because of gender bias. At Girls Tower High, we aim to inspire many girls to bridge these gaps in gender inequality in these fields.
According to the United Nations, enrollment in primary education in developing countries has reached 91 percent but 57 million primary age children remain out of school.
