What Women and Girls Can Achieve
We believe in the power of groups, that by pulling together women are stronger and can do far more, faster than they can alone. The path out of poverty can be found by making women strong.
The cost of violence against women and girls amounts to at least 5% of global GDP.
Violence, or the threat of violence, blocks a woman’s ability to overcome poverty.
Every year of education delays marriage for girls and lowers their risk of dying in pregnancy or childbirth.
Educated women have fewer children, and these children are more likely to survive and go to school.
Every year a girl goes to school can increase her future income by 10%.
When women earn more they are more likely than men to spend the money on family needs.
