Education is a fundamental human right—a vital resource in overcoming poverty and inequality globally. All children have the right to quality basic education, the bedrock for a productive life.

But key to this success is ensuring that girls, as well as boys, have full, equal access to a good quality education system which gives them knowledge and skills. Better-educated girls make better decisions at home, at work, and are better prepared as mothers to protect their children’s health from chronic illnesses like HIV AIDS. Long-term, inequalities between girls and boys have significant negative impacts on societies and progress. Girls’ education is fundamental to economic and social development of individuals, families, and nations.
