Fewer than one in five girls in all of sub-Saharan Africa complete secondary school, and there are millions more girls worldwide who will never move beyond primary school. In this book published by AED, Keeping the Promise: Five Benefits of Girls’ Secondary Education clearly and succinctly presents data and analysis on the importance of educating girls in developing countries. It also illustrates the impact educating girls has on the day-to-day lives of real families that the writer, May Rihani, has met through her more than 30 years of experience in the field.
