Globally, one in five girls around the world is denied an education by the daily realities of poverty, discrimination and violence. Every day, young girls are missing from education, isolated from their friends, forced into marriage and subjected to violence. Not only is this unjust, it is a waste of potential with serious global consequences. Supporting girls' education is one of the single best investments we can make to help end poverty.

This toolkit is for anyone who believes passionately in the power of education as a force for good in the world and the right for all children to get a good quality education, no matter where they are and what the circumstances. Included in the toolkit are real stories of change, led by young people, from all over the world. The young global movement for education is growing and you can be part of it.
